          Entertainment value of tours frequently better than the wines...
          We have absolutely no idea who "Greg" might be, but our driver/guide was Robbie who was excellent, could not have been more knowledgeable and was a total hoot!. The entertainment value of wine tours we have experienced worldwide is frequently better than the wine offerings themselves. For this tour, we drew the Trinity Hill/Ash Ridge/Paritua/Sileni itinerary. All were reasonably good stops, but the information which Chris provided at Trinity Hill about New Zealand Wine Collective Direct was invaluable. We were pleased to learn later on our tour that Paritua was on the Collective but unfortunately Sileni was not. Looking forward to enjoying more wines of our choice directly from New Zealand in Seattle!

          Great quality tour and great wine.
          A great afternoon. Greg took us to 4 really good wineries at each of which we tasted a good range of wines. Greg is an engaging and informative host- and best of all he drives! This is a quality experience.

          A fantastic tour. Greg the guide was so friendly and spot on with his timing for collection and commentary. Four vineyards visited which were all excellent and a great selection of wine. Would recommend to anyone.

          A Must-Do in Napier!
          An exceptional and outstanding experience. Gregory, and his furry and lovable sidekick Teddy, showed us a fantastic time. The wineries all had great flights, with very knowledgeable and super friendly hosts. It’s the perfect way to get a taste of the region and was made extra special because of our hosts. We highly recommend this experience, especially for all who want a bit extra that the North Island has to offer.

          Amazing
          David was our tour guide on our wine tour trip. He was absolutely amazing! He was professional, knowledgeable and made it a great day for me and my husband. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a nice afternoon with some history behind the wines. Thanks so much David!

          Unbelievable Wine Tour
          What an experience!!! Definitely recommend a wine tour with Grape Escape Wine Tours with Greg. Great wine, great food, great company, great conversation and great driving skills by our amazing tour guide/ host Greg. We booked last minute and Greg was so nice and allowed us to join his tour. The knowledge that Greg has in the wine region and the local history of Napier was amazing. If you’re thinking of booking, definitely book at Grape Escape Wine Tours with Greg. Barry & Kulaia

          Wine tasting afternoon fun.
          We had a great afternoon tasting various wines at 4 different vineyards. Gregory was very friendly, knowledgeable and organised. The best way to see the different vineyards, no driving involved pick up and drop off all on time, would definitely recommend Grapescapes.

          Exceptional wine tour.
          Amazing day out! Greg is extremely knowledgeable and an extremely hospitable and great guide. We went to a variety of wineries and the staff or Greg ensured our wine preferences were accommodated. You could see the rapport he has with the winery staff ensures that everyone had an exceptional experience. Highly recommend this tour as the leading Hawkes Bay wine experience and a must do in the region.

        A fantastic day in Napier. After being picked up by Greg we stopped off for some cherries before heading to Sileni. Fantastic wines and Lee was the perfect host. We next went to Trinity Hill and tasted another batch of quality wines. Paritua next on the list and a detour to Te Mata before finishing at Craggy Range. A great host in Greg and fantastic memories made. Highly recommend.
