Mista - Wine Dog

Mista WineO The Wine Dog Connoisseur

If you can’t get enough of the Wine Dogs book series, full of photographs of your favourite working dogs found in wineries and vineyards around the world, you’ll love getting to know the official wine dog of Enjoi New Zealand wine tours.

The first New Zealand wine tour dog of his kind, Mista is the brand new mascot and face of Enjoi. A pedigree Maltese, Mista is a true companion dog and loves to get friendly with visitors. He’ll be coming along on all of the Enjoi wine tours to meet each of the wonderful groups and soak up all the attention and cuddles he can get.


Dogs have made appearances on vineyards for years, used to scare off birds that could potentially cause thousands of dollars of loss during a vineyards’ harvest. Dogs are generally preferred to nettings and pesticides, as they create the greatest effect, with the least damages to the vines.

After receiving recent attention from oenophiles for their overall adorable and friendly natures, a number of coffee table books have been produced dedicated to man’s (and wine’s) furry best friends. While Mista doesn’t have a book dedicated to his good looks and charming ways (yet), your group will easily fall in love with this little bundle of fun.

Discover any of Enjoi’s New Zealand wine tours this summer, in either Waiheke or Queenstown. Perfect for wine-loving travellers, corporate retreats and hen or stag parties (and dog lovers, of course!), choose from a variety of tours and experiences to best fit your tastes. Additionally, new booking options allow you to add on return ferry tickets, upgrades and more.
