What to Expect

Indulge your tastebuds on this delectable journey around Hawkes Bay and Napier where you'll enjoy a delicious platter lunch, followed by an afternoon of wine and gin tasting at various venues. 


Hawkes Bay is New Zealand's second-largest wine region and boasts a temperate climate and plenty of sunshine, with the region best known for its Chardonnay, Syrah & Bordeaux-style red blends.


Your tour starts with pick-ups from anywhere in the Greater Napier area. You'll travel onboard a spacious minibus with your guide, who has 15 years of experience growing grapes and ten years as a tour guide. Enjoy interesting and informative commentary throughout your experience. 


The first stop is Mission Estate Winery, New Zealand's oldest winery, for a Chef's platter luncheon shared between two and a glass of wine at Mission Estate Bistro. Aftewards, enjoy a wine tasting and a chance to purchase a bottle or two to take home. Established by French missionaries in 1851, Hawkes Bay the birthplace of New Zealand's wine country. The cellar door, where you'll enjoy your tasting, is located in an elegantly restored seminary building with sweeping views of the vineyard which makes it the perfect spot for a photo or two!


Next up is gin. The National Distillery Company is located in a picturesque 1930s Art Nouveau building in Ahuriri, an old maritime town. The gin collection is extensive and features New Zealand botanicals for unique and inspiring flavours. Options include the New Zealand Dry, Art Deco, Damson Plum, and Verdigris, among others. 


Switching back to wine, visit Urban Winery, Napier's newest and coolest winery. It's home to Tony Bish Wines and boasts spectacular egg-shaped concrete and French oak fermenters, which have revolutionised Chardonnay fermentation.


Linden Estate Winery is the final stop of the tour, and you'll enjoy a seated tasting accompanied by a delicious cheese board. The vineyards are located on the slopes of the Esk Valley hill, offering a protected microclimate and incredible views. Varieties grown include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
