  • Took my Swedish Family for a Tasting. Impressed with the service, friendly and informative, lovely relaxed ambience. 5 Stars for all their wines.  more »
  • We arrived at the winery only to be told very rudely ( we assume it was the owner) that we were parking in the wrong spot. My husband went to move the car and as the rest of the party walked towards t...  more »
  • Really impressed with this winery. Pleasant staff and though extremely busy were attentive but not pushy. There is a $5 tasting fee which i always feels takes the pressure off buying if you dont like ...  more »

  • Pretty dissapointed in the customer service. $5 for a tasting I would expect a bit more attention from staff. No explanation of the wines being tasted and only one wine stood out. Save your money for the more quieter wineries for a more personal experience, more often then not, they are free tastings.
  • Absolutely appalling service. Older lady who worked there put her face in my mother’s face asking her to “invent a table” due to a busy day! Learn some manners! Other local wineries much better! Used to drink the purple hen wine but never again.
  • Would not bother! It appeared to be a beautiful winery but we didn’t even make it into the front door before a grumpy old male staff member made us feel very unwelcome. I think a job without customer interaction is better suited to his personality.
  • Enjoyable award-winning local winery. Tasting is $5 per person that is refundable per bottle purchased. Local region cheese platters can be ordered and enjoyed inside, or in the peaceful outdoor areas. Local bottled beer also available. If it's busy, you may have to patient - it's a small winery.
  • As I let them know in person, I've never been made to feel so uncomfortable at a winery that promotes itself as 'family friendly'. We were the only people there, we brought some friends and our kids and some games to occupy them. Purple Hen, if you don't like the sound of children's voices, I suggest you fix your acoustics. Our kids were well behaved and you still couldn't be friendly toward any of us. We won't be coming back again. 4 for the wine 0 for the customer service
