We took a tour with Andy as our guide. We had come into Napier on a cruise ship and met Andy at the information centre. We thoroughly enjoy our time and Andy was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide.

Our guide Andrew was amazing. Im not really a wine person but thought we would do the tour as we were in a wine region. The tour was excellent and Andrew was well versed in wine. This was the highlight of our trip. Thanks Andrew...More

We had a wonderful afternoon with Christine as our host. We visited 3 wineries and were welcomed warmly at each. The wines were good quality and with enough variety to suit any palette.
