He took us to the top of a hill overlooking the bay and served us an outstanding fresh picnic lunch with wine. The view was amazing and we were the only people there!

Ross took us to four vineyards in the Hawke's Bay region north of Napier. This was far more than a wine tasting, though that was lovely. Ross is deeply knowledgeable about cultivating wine grapes, and patiently answered our many questions. We learned much about bird nets, powdery mildew, the consequences of the timing of rain on grapes, and much more.... More

We absolutely loved this tour. Ross was the perfect host and it was great to have a guide that had lived in the area for so long and worked in the primary industries. Ross covered a bit of everything for us and gave us a really good overview of Napier and it's surrounds. After picking us up outside the aquarium... More
