Went here as it was close to where we were staying and I must say it was a great experience. The service was top notch. They charge $5 for tasting but you get a neat glass out of it and get to try 8 great wines which I would say is pretty worth it. Would definitely recommend

So we visit Mission Estate vineyard whilst in sunny Napier. Magnificent old timber manor, set amongst regal grounds of sizely proportions. Old money. We enter to be greeted by Sam Gangee, who asks us "and what can we help you with?" Every ounce of me wanted to say "well, we're not here to dance with spiders", but decorum prevails. I... More

This vineyard estate screams of the elegance of a bygone era. From the minute we drove up the avenue lined with pollarded trees, towards the Mission House we knew this place was something special. We went on a short but interesting guided tour, through some of the beautiful rooms of the old mansion . A coach party had just arrived... More

Based on the reviews we decided to make this a wine tasting stop while visiting Napier. The grounds were lovely but they did not cope well with the extra traffic in the tasting room (busy holiday season). Once at the bar our host did not provide much information about the wine and seemed generally uninterested in us. She put minimal... More

We booked this as the final lunch of our week long trip. The lady in the phone was amazed we had the foresight to book two weeks ahead but we were right to. We were directed to the restaurant and had a choice of a few two seater tables and were quick to order having previously viewed the menu on... More

From the drive approaching, the entrance, the beautiful wooden tasting room through to the Gardens and tables set out for meal under umbrellas this is pure peaceful elegance. Six different meals were ordered for Lunch and all were beautifully presented and delicious. All service was professional, quiet and friendly.

This is probably the best Vineyard in Hawkes Bay. The setting is amazing and the wine and food is fantastic. We sat on the lawn under a garden umbrella and had the cheese platter and a glass of wine and it was absolutely beautiful

I have a holiday home in Napier and Mission Winery is a must do every visit. Sitting out on the lounge on the front lawn, soaking up the sun after enjoying a Mission Rose, and trying to fit in a decadent dessert. Service is always great and the food sublime also catering well for food allergies.

Mission Estate vineyard and restaurant are a beautiful place to visit - with historic buildings, views over the vineyard and the garden. The wine is beautiful. The restaurant has wonderful ambiance for dining but somehow the food on the night we went did not quite match the finesse of everything else. It was lovely but.. The salad was a little... More
