Mission Estate Winery

Holiday Travel Guide
Mission Estate Winery

Leave the city behind for a day to experience idyllic countryside surroundings and sip a range of magnificent wines.

Explore the old cellar at Mission Estate Winery for the chance to learn the secrets behind producing award-winning wines. Enjoy fabulous views while dining on sumptuous meat and seafood at one of the oldest wineries in the country.

Drive up the long, charming, tree-lined driveway leading to the pioneering winery, which was established back in 1851. Start with a look inside the historic cellar door, housed in a beautifully restored seminary building. See the old wooden barrels where the wine is stored and listen as an experienced guide describes the intricate winemaking processes that ensure it tastes just right. The guide will also explain how the estate managed to grow from a tiny operation to become one of the most influential vineyards in the Southern Hemisphere.

After all that talk of wine, you’re bound to be in the mood for a tasting. Bring the tour to a close with a complimentary sampling of some of the wines produced here.

Consider stopping by the nearby Mission Estate Restaurant for lunch or dinner. Gaze out across fields of orderly vines and towards the coastline beyond while eating. Ask your waiter for wine recommendations to pair with your chosen food. The restaurant also features an outdoor dining terrace, perfect for balmy summer days.

Mission Estate Winery is a 10-minute drive southwest of Napier. The winery is open all week and there is an admission fee for cellar tours. The tours take place twice daily with one in the morning and another in the afternoon. The tour is suitable for all ages though tastings are only for those over the age of 18. Should you want to stay on the winery, rent the luxurious three-bedroom cottage set on the idyllic grounds.
