On this tour you will visit Mission Estate, the oldest winery in New Zealand, and hear the story that commenced in Lyon, France. You will also visit an Ale House to sample beers and ciders, and enjoy views of the Art Deco city.

While at the Mission Estate winery, you will have time to explore the grounds and admire the majestic building - and then you will have the opportunity to taste the wine!

Your tour continues to the third oldest winery in New Zealand for another wine tasting opportunity inside a fantastic cellar setting. You will learn about the world famous "Gimblett Gravels" and see first-hand why the Gravels are considered and treated as an appellation.

Next, you will return to the historic Port area of Napier, Ahuriri to visit an Ale House. Here you will be able to relax and soak up the port atmosphere while enjoying your choice of 3 drinks from their range of beers and cider (tea or coffee are also available).

Finally, discover the beauty of this Art Deco city by enjoying a drive through a 1930's Art Deco Housing Estate. You will see and learn how the city was destroyed and why it was rebuilt in the Art Deco style of the 1920's and 1930's. You will also see the National Tobacco Building, the best example of Art Deco in the country. Experience all the period highlights on this Art Deco tour.

At the conclusion of the tour, you will have the option to do some shopping or just walk the main streets in the central city with your camera before returning to your shuttle. You will also receive a small souvenir to remember your time spent in Napier.

Reviewer: Sharon Jones
Loved the smaller van and the tours of the wineries were excellent. Very good tour guide and driver. She had a true Kiwi accent.

5 StarsBeer and wine tasting for adults December 18, 2018

Reviewer: Marta Allen
This was a great experience. The guide was very informative of the area of Napier. The tasting of the beer at the beer hall had lots of choice and amount. Munchies with it was a nice touch. Both wineries were good. Liked Mission better. There was a swag gift as well, which was unexpected. We were dropped off near the aquarium, so took a further peek around town to take pictures. This excursion is great for couples, older or younger. Not really for children or teens.

Reviewer: John Aycock
Great overview of the spirits of Hawkes Bay ! We visited a number of estates and sampled reds, whites and rose ( especially liked GWEN, the wine made for estate owner's wife). Stopped at a cool brewery/restaurant where we ate lamb burgers and enjoyed a sampling of six local beers. Wonderful day , well paced and most enjoyable!
