“Excellent, informative, extensive and entertaining wine tour”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had half a day to spare in Napier, and chose to go on Vince's Wine Tour. We didn't regret that for a second; one of the best wine tours we've ever been at. 30+ wines I believe we tasted, many of them very good and fairly exclusive. The trip was excellently tailored to our taste and preference; would recommend Vince to absolutely anyone interested in a wine tour in the Hawke's Bay area.

“Vince is awesome”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Even though there were only two of us, and it was off season, Vince came and picked us up and took us on a well-thought out tour of small wineries, advising us when to buy and when to wait for the next place, and arranging for a cheese plate at our last stop when we began to get hungry in the middle of the tour. He is knowledgeable, personable, professional and very friendly.

My partner and I went to Napier for our recent anniversary and were absolutely thrilled with Vince's tour. He quickly identified the types of wine we were interested in and coordinated the tour accordingly. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting the Hawkes Bay!

“Great afternoon out”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Very friendly, entertaining and accommodating host. Great links with the local wine community which showed touring round some smaller boutique vineyards with excellent wines. Would not hesitate to recommend. Thanks Vince!

“Fun wine tour”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Vince knows his wineries. He takes you to the smaller wineries that make the best wine. Unlike other winery tours I have been on, you actually get to try more then 3 or 4 wines. All the hosts are very kind and truly want you to understand their wine. Vince caters to non-cruise goers which is great because we were on our own schedule and not the boats. He picks you up at your hotel and gives commentary along the way.
