La Grande Maison, Mission Estate
Housed in an elegantly restored historic seminary building with sweeping views of Napier, Mission Estate is the most visited winery in the country.
With over 130,000 visitors per year, it truly offers visitors the ultimate wine experience.
Take your time and wander around the beautiful and elegantly restored seminary building; view the photographs and images in the cellar door that document the extraordinary history of the Mission and the missionaries who built it. Then finish off with a tasting from our extensive range where for $5 you can taste 4 or 5 wines and get a free Mission glass to take home.
The renowned Mission Restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner, offering contemporary cuisine using only the freshest local produce. Mission Estate wines appear on the wine list and the restaurant's well-informed waiting staff are on hand to provide the best advice on food and wine matchings.
Visitors are encouraged to explore the gardens and soak up the ambience of the estate – in fact, this is part of what makes Mission Estate such a special destination.
