There are a couple of wineries in Hawke’s Bay but one that stands out is the Mission Estate Winery. Mission has been in the winemaking business since 1851 and it is New Zealand’s first every winery meaning it is also the oldest one.

Mission was founded by missionaries so back then, the wines they made were for religious activities such as the holy sacraments and holy masses. Mission thrives on its French heritage as most of the practices and methods used in the winery were inspired in France.

Now, Mission offers vacations of all sorts. Hundreds of couples said their vows here and got married. Thousands of people escaped the busy world and took temporary shelter at Mission’s amazing farmhouses.

The wines you get to taste and enjoy at Mission are truly world-class. You can enjoy the finest Viognier, Semillon, Chardonnay, Antoine, and so much more wine selections.

Hawke’s Bay also has Church Road Winery, Brookfields Winery, Black Barn Winery, and more.
