Ross was an absolutely brilliant host! - friendly and helpful with lots of knowledge about the local area and Napier's wine making industry.

The 4 vineyards we visited were exceptional and the wine and cheese afternoon tea at the end of the tour was a really lovely touch.

I would definitely recommend this tour for a great overall wine tasting experience at a very reasonable cost.

Ross has all the knowledge of the vines, vineyards and wines, is a great communicator, and has access to views which you will not find on other tours. Don't miss this great experience in the Hawkes Bay. Thank you Ross.

Ross came to pick us up at our hotel in his little van and took us to four different vineyards. They all knew him, told us about the local wine and let us try a little with no pretensions or hard-sell. The wines spoke for themselves. Ross also gave us a little insight into the region and how wine is made. The really special part of his tour is taking us along a rapidly disappearing track to the top of a hill overlooking the Pacific on one side and rolling fields on the other for a cheese picnic and chat while the sun set. Ross is a genuinely kind and lovely person and his tour reflects that completely. This is a really laid back and honest NZ experience.

I went on this tour today and it was great! Learnt a lot about wines and the growing process! The cheese platter on the hill was a great touch and made it different from the rest! Some amazing wines tasted I would have got loads had it not been for backpacking! I insist you book this when you're in town! Thanks Ross!

With one day's notice, my wife and I were able to arrange a private tour of four wineries that offer fine chardonnays. Ross Lepper arranged everything, picked us up at our hotel and included both an excellent wine and cheese party with a great view of the Hawke's Bay area and a detour to show us some of the original Art Deco houses in Napier. I highly recommend this organization.
