Mission Estate Winery

Established in 1851 by the French Marist religious order, Mission Estate Winery is New Zealand's oldest winery, and is internationally regarded as a producer of superb quality wines. The stunningly refurbished seminary building nestled in the Taradale Hills overlooking Napier is also home to the cellar door and the celebrated Mission Restaurant.

Cellar Door
The Mission Estate cellar door is one of the most visited in New Zealand. The cellar has gone through a number of challenges including relocating, fires, earthquakes, expansion and more recently the completion of the spectacular underground cellar. Join us in an historic tour and taste an extensive range of award-winning wines. Contact cellardoor@missionestate.co.nz for details.  

The upgraded seminary building at the Mission is a stunning location for the highly regarded Mission restaurant.  Nestled in the Taradale Hills, the elevated historic building offers extensive views of the vineyard and Hawkes Bay. Excellent service, quality seasonal produce and award-winning wines combine to create a memorable experience.

The Estate offers an array of conference facilities that vary from intimacy to corporate functions. The Red Room is a small elegant room able to be separated from the main dining area and used as a private venue. The Chapel has high vaulted ceilings, arched windows and wood panelling suitable for weddings, large corporate meetings/dinners/functions.  It is fully contained with French doors opening out on to a terraced lawn, and has a raised staging area for entertainment.

Our reception venue, The Chapel, with its high vaulted ceilings and arched windows, is a beautiful and dramatic venue for a wedding. It is fully self-contained with its own bar facilities, with French doors opening onto the Terrace and Lawn, the perfect area for pre-dinner canapes and drinks. Contact our wedding co-ordinator (Erin Speakman) for further details.
