Mission Estate Winery Tours

New Zealand produces some of the world’s most renowned, award-winning wines, and Mission Estate Winery on the outskirts of Napier is where it all began. Founded in 1851, Mission Estate was started by missionaries who journeyed from France with little more than a dream and a couple of vines. Now, nearly two centuries later, Mission Estate continues to operate as one of New Zealand’s best wineries, and is a staple on any shore excursion or wine tasting tour of Napier.

Head down the tree lined driveway toward the old fashioned estate and its fountain, and you'll immediately fall for the history and regal charm of the area. Step outside on the hilltop veranda for a view of the vineyard landscapes leading back to Napier’s downtown or to sip in the sun protected by the shade of one of the winery's big, white outdoor umbrellas.

Practical Info

Mission Estate Winery is located around 5 miles (8 km) from the heart of downtown Napier, and is about a 10-minute drive. You can access the winery by car, bike, and organized tour—a great option for anyone looking to enjoy their wine without drawing straws for designated driver.

The winery is open daily from 9am to 5pm Monday through Saturday, and from 10:30am to 4:30pm on Sunday.
 
Did You Know? Along the Mission Estate driveway, there is still one row of Muscat grapes that have been grafted from the original vines that were brought by the French missionaries.
