Cellar Door

Mission is proud of being New Zealand’s oldest winery. We look forward to sharing our wine and our rich history with guests in a beautiful setting that embraces the old and new.

Our Cellar Door tastings are hosted in the Grande Maison, an elegantly restored seminary building nestled in the Taradale hills, offering visitors sweeping views of the vineyards and the coast beyond.

Join us for a tasting in the beautiful and elegantly restored seminary building.

Sample a range of premium wines, learn about our heritage and the extraordinary history of the Mission and the Missionaries who built it from our Cellar Door Hosts.
