My husband and I visited the Wine Centre, Napier on the weekend and I thought I would let you know how thoroughly we enjoyed it. The aroma room is an excellent idea and I thought the tastings with the winemakers were great. We had Karlos show us through and I really enjoyed his enthusiasm and knowledge. An excellent experience all round.

We were impressed with the wine centre too- I only wish we had done that first to give us a bit more of an insight on the smells and tastes awaiting us- we will recommend it to everyone! -

"Thanks so much for all your help and the booking. Your NZ Wine Centre is brilliant and should be copied the world over. We've never seen anything like it, and we've been through an awful lot of appellations and countries."

"I just wanted to say thank you for making today such a success! The clients were very happy and surprised with their gift to take home. Please thank the team for their help with the function - they were an essential part and were really lovely"

‘I have been to all the Wine Adventures in New Zealand and the Hawke's Bay Wine Adventure is by far the most impressive, both with the fantastic setting in such a beautiful building, and because it's a lot more comprehensive than its counterparts. The dual theatres, number of wineries participating, and the fine wine store are all very impressive. Congratulations on one of our best tourist attractions here in New Zealand.’

"We asked the NZ Wine Centre to participate in a Famil we organised for 45 of our members. This entailed a wine flight followed by a social event with canapes in the main hub of the Wine Centre. The Wine Centre staff were extremely helpful in organising this event for us and made it very easy to book. The wine flight was highly enjoyable and interesting, and our members found the whole experience fascinating. The catering was excellent and abundant, and the venue itself, of course, really impressive. We also took some overseas wine industry delegate's to the centre the following day and they were highly impressed with the whole centre.”

"The New Zealand Wine Centre Hawke's Bay hosted a group from the MTA as part of our Annual Conference held in Napier. The service provided was impeccable and their inner city location made the whole trip so simple from an organisational point of view. Our guests had such a good time, some went back for round two in their free time later that day. The New Zealand Wine Centre also sourced all the wine for our Awards Gala Dinner, the ordering process was so easy and Gemma was a delight to work with, providing lots of information about the wines as well as sourcing wines that would suit our budget. The wine arrived perfectly on time and their advice on quantities was spot on. Thank you so much for all your help!"

2. A unique experience with an entertaining Comp ere saw us enjoy a selection of wine tasting's back grounded by an educational movie of Hawkes Bay.
3. Absolutely Awesome, a relaxing pleasurable personalized experience for each Group member.
