Half-Day Wine and Beer Tour from Napier
From US$83.45
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Visit three wineries and a beloved local ale house on a half-day tour that’s all about Napier wine and beer. Taste wines at each destination, from the country’s oldest winery to a boutique winery, learn about wine-making techniques on a comprehensive tour, then visit a wine museum built into underground wine fermentation tanks. The small-group tour wraps up with three glasses of cider or beer at an ale house in Napier’s historic center, and it includes round-trip transportation from the city center.
What to Expect
This hugely popular tour starts with a free pickup from your Napier accommodation or the Napier Visitor Center on the Marine Parade. Head off to the world famous Gimblett Gravels wine growing region. Visit three very different wineries on the day, from boutique to something that would fit right into the Bordeaux region in France and the oldest winery in New Zealand the Mission Estate winery. 
Along the way you will take a tour of a working winery and learn why this winery is a premium producer on the world stage. Learn the wine making techniques as you make your way around, inside and out, over and under this winery.
Explore their Winery Museum and Wine Cellars that were once underground wine fermentation tanks. If this wasn't enough already, you will then head off to a delightful ale house in the historic part of Napier. Here you will select and relax and enjoy three glass fulls of beers and or ciders from their extensive range.
At the completion of these tastings and drinks, you will be returned to your accommodation or any location within Napier City area. What a way to spend 4-5 hours.
