My partner and I opted for this proposed tour of four wineries surrounding Napier between 12.30-5pm on a lovely sunny afternoon. Our vehicle turned up at 12.55 and we didn't actually start the tour until about 1.20pm. Not a great start. Things, however, quickly improved...More

Very thorough guide Denise. Met Greg the owner too. Extremely knowledgeable, couldn't do enough for us and the food at Church Road was surpassed only by the Tom wine. Ask Greg what whitebait tastes like if you get a chance!!

Thanks Mark a great bunch of lads really enjoyed lunch with you guys. The only way to cook whitebait is with minimum fuss. One egg white, salt and pepper and lightly cook in a non stick pan. Greg

Greg is a fantastic host. Very knowledgable, in fact he knows more about wine than people working at the cellar doors. I have travelled from U.K. to Napier twice and used him both times. He is punctual, friendly and also very funny so if you...More

We had a wonderful afternoon with Robbie at Grape Escapes. Together we visited a great selection of vineyards - smaller family run cellar doors along with larger internationally known brands. Grape Escapes were easy and very friendly to deal with - give them a call...More
