Fodor's Review

Surrounded by gardens this classic winery stands in the Taradale hills overlooking Napier. As the country's oldest winery, dating back to 1851, it should be added to your "must-see" list. Award-winning wines, including the Mission Jewelstone range, can be bought or tasted at the cellar door. Join one of the tours to learn about the mission's history. A gallery sells local handmade pottery and crafts. If you stay for a meal, get a seat on the terrace for a terrific view of the vineyard and Napier. Also check out the website—the vineyard often has big name performers giving concerts through the year. To reach the vineyard, leave Napier by Kennedy Road, heading southwest from the city center toward Taradale. Just past Anderson Park, turn right into Avenue Road and continue to its end at Church Road.
