The New Zealand Wine Centre is one of Napier's Must-Do attractions. It is truly a wine lovers paradise or a good place to start to experience all about Hawke's Bay wines. The Hawke's Bay wine country has a lot to offer and produces great wines - the New Zealand Wine Centre makes it easy for everyone to learn, taste and enjoy great wines. Choose from over six different tasting options, go on a virtual scenic flight over the Bay or watch the History of Napier Film. As another little extra, the New Zealand Wine Centre is located in the iconic AMP building, a must-see for Art Deco Lovers.
