As New Zealand's Oldest Winemaker Mission Estate has a longstanding reputation for producing some of the nations finest wines. This was further endorsed at the 2009 International Wine Challenge where Mission Estate experienced double gold medal success and also won a Trophy for its Reserve Syrah 2007
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.
