We decided to come here for our Sunday meal after 5 days touring in Camper Van! Food and service is five star! The Mission Eatate Réserve Sauvignon is a must! One of the nicest white wines I have tasted. Top Marks from us!

Its beautiful and stunning, and the wines are pretty good too! We had a lovely tasting and some great laughs, and ended up with some beautiful dessert wine. Would love to go back in the summer for one of their concerts.

Although the harvest is over, the Mission building is open but they are not offering tours. You can walk around the building, the history about the brothers is very interesting. It was the first winery in NZ. You can pay for the wine tasting.
