Wonderful private(-ish) tour
, Dec 2019
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 there, Thank you for taking the time to provide Vines and Views a great review. Really pleased that I was able to inform you about New Zealand wines. My back ground as a vineyard manager over a good many years certainly helps. Cheers Ross
Great Tour and Great Wines

My wife and I found this wine tour online and are really happy we did. Ross was the driver (and owner) of the tour company and his attention to detail and knowledge was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour and would book it again when I return. Fun and informative. Phil and Kathy

July 2019 Napier Wine Tour
, Jul 2019
We had a knowledgeable interesting tour guide who bought extra depth and experience to the tour by way of being a manager to various vineyards in the area. From an Australian perspective it was exciting to sample the varieties and labels available in New Zealand that we do not have access to. The tour bus picked us up at our hotel which made the tour very relaxing and we found it an excellent afternoon in the Napier wine region.

Hi Carol, Thank you for taking the time to provide me with a great review. My complimentary cheese and biscuits certainly gets appreciated and I too love the landscape in the Esk Valley. Cheers Ross
Great guide
, Apr 2019
Ross had a great sense of humor and an equally impressive knowledge of wine. The wineries were as diverse as the wines - old, new, modern, classic, bold, easy going, etc. I thought the tour was timed nicely as well, not too much time at any one venue and not too much time spent traveling in the car. A must do in Napier.

Thank you for your review. Its good to hear that my guests appreciate the variety of wineries I have chosen. Also that you mention that there is not much drive time involved with my tour, Regards Ross
Really good tour
, Jan 2019
thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guide was excellent. Only issues were the full bus tours by the big cruise lines at some of the big name wineries, Church Road, and Mission. Pretty crowded venues. Then we went to Urban winery, and tasted wines and cheeses in the outdoor setting in the vineyard. That was the best, but we were a smaller tour group, so that made it a very relaxing atmosphere, with great wines.,

This was one of the best wine tours I have been on. The four wineries we visited were all beautiful and offered many tastings per stop. Ross was also a great and informative guide. Would highly recommend
