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.

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

We were a small group and had a great time! The wineries were each different and very interesting. Of course the wines were really great and the cheese plate we shared at the end was considerate and yummy!! Of course my biggest problem was how to pack the bottles of wine I bought at each winery!!!

Mission and Linden were beautiful. The others also attractive.
Esk had the best service and selection.
Church was largely indifferent, few offerings, poor selection, unhelpful staff-should be dropped from the tour.
Overall, the wine was just ok.

Christopher showed us all around Napier and then 4 very different wineries. At the last one he packed a cheese and fruit basket, which was a nice touch. We totally enjoyed the 5 hours it took and highly recommend it!
