Mission Estate is the birthplace of New Zealand wine, when our founders built the first winery in Hawke's Bay in 1851. We are very proud to be New Zealand's oldest winemaker. In one of the most sustainable wineries in the country we create our current collection of Mission Estate, Vineyard Selection, Reserve and Jewelstone award-winning wines. With advanced viticultural practices and a progressive winemaking team, we have a long-standing reputation for quality and over-delivering at every price point. Housed in an elegantly restored historic seminary building with sweeping views of Napier, Mission Estate offers visitors a year round complete wine experience. A visit to the cellar door provides an opportunity to try the extensive range of wines and for those interested in history, the twice daily historic walk is a must. Lunch or dinner can be enjoyed seven days in the renowned Mission restaurant, and the adjoining Chapel provides the ideal venue for a picturesque wedding reception or conference Read more »

  • I ran up to Napa for a few days to get away and taste some wines from places I'd never been (most of them).  I went during BottleRock Napa, but alas, didn't partake in an y of those festivities.  Some great finds, so I have listed/linked any of the wines I rated over 90 points, should anyone have interest, or their own thoughts on the wines. Wit...

  • There's an argument to be made for Riesling, and it's made on a regular basis. It goes something like this: Riesling is great, it's flexible and it's food friendly, with wines ranging from dry to syrupy sweet, so there's something for everyone to like. This has been the argument of the day for years now. Trouble is Riesling still finds resistanc... Read More

  • Being a cab lover I am hesitant to stray from what I like. On a recent occasion I had the opportunity to try a Zinfandel and to my amazement, it had some of the same attributes of the cabernets I love so well. I perused Snooth and stopped on a particular zin from Bogle vineyards. Gregory Dal Piaz gave it a nice rating and being a member of Snoot... Read More

  • . . . and, boy, are my arms tired.I don't know when I first heard the term "Super Tuscan."  I'm guessing that it was 10-12 years ago.  I really did not know what it meant--me being very focussed on my California world.I did, of course, learn that a Super Tuscan was a wine that was made from grapes that were outside the Tuscany tradition--specifi...

It’s one that really requires you to read any review that is accompany... Read More
