Our Heli dine tour with Grape Escape was simply amazing. It was a fantastic way to spend the day celebrating our 40th birthdays. Flying across the bay and out to the coast was some of the most beautiful scenery in NZ and landing at Craggy Range was an incredible experience. Greg and his team made the day just so easy... More

We had a great afternoon post Air NZ Hawkes Bay marathon, touring the countryside and trialling 40 different wines. Pete was a great host, and the wineries all took time to take us through their ranges, and talk about the products. This is my 4th trip with Grape Escape, and they keep getting better! I highly recommend the lads if... More

We visited six wineries in total and the quality of these were outstanding. Greg provided some interesting and humorous commentary which kept us entertained.

Grape Escape was great. Our host Pete was fantastic, had great knowledge of wine and the area. The wine tasting was very interesting, lots of fun and each winery gave us a better knowledge on how their great wine is produced.

We had the BEST time on the Grape Escape wine tour on Saturday afternoon. Pete was the most wonderful guide - we learnt so much on top of tasting some of the best wines I've ever had. The Grape Escape is much more than a shuttle service between vineyards. You are given lots of background on the region, the vineyards... More
