Searching for Charfonnay

We’d never been to the Hawkes Bay and wanted to experience the local wines so booked this tour. Our tour ditector, Ross turned up on time. The vehicle was spacious and clean. He was very knowledgable about the wine and the history of the local area. The cheeseboard and home grown avocado was quickly devoured - very delicious. I tried a few chardonnays on this tour but am still looking for tge right one. We would highly reccommend this tour.

Ross was a super host, pick up from accommodation and lots of local knowledge. Tasting at The Mission a highlight. Really enjoyed the visit to the The National Distillery Company too, delicious Gin tasting.

Hi there, thanks for the great review. The Mission tasting experience always comes up tops and that is why all of my tours call there. The national gin Distillery sure is popular and I am keen to have it posted on my website and booking apps but these things take time. Cheers Ross

We visited the wineries at Mission Estate, Linden Estate and Church Road. It was a very enjoyable afternoon. We had three couples and Ross made it a great experience as he took us to each winery and gave us some history and pointed out interesting landmarks as we travelled between the vineyards. The Wine presenters at each vineyard were very knowledgeable. It was a great afternoon with two other friendly couples.

We had a great afternoon with Ross, it was a very full tour so the company was great and the optional beer tasting went down a treat! The first two stops were the best of the wineries, the last however, Linden, we were told nothing at all about the winery by our tasting host at the winery, or the wines we were tasting, they just poured and left us to it which was disappointing.

Hi Lisa, Thanks for the review. I have been in contact with Linden this morning and complained about the experience there and asked that they have more provide more staff

Wonderful private(-ish) tour
chrisleungtc

One of the best wine tours I've been on! We got to visit 3 wineries, and my girlfriend and I were fortunate to be the only two participants on that day so we get to ask a lot of questions regarding grape growing and wine making, and Ross is really professional and gave us a lot of insight on the subject matter. We also get to enjoy some wonderful cheeses and grapes at a private location out on the vineyards, and Ross was kind enough to let us take some of them away to enjoy after the tour. I will definitely recommend my friends to join this tour when they visit Napier.

Hi Chris, wow, thanks you for providing such a good and comprehensive review, I caught not have written better myself !. Cheers Ross
