  • 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 1 stood out. Save your money for the more quieter wineries for a more personal experience, more often then not, they are free tastings.
  • 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
  • I’ve never been here, or to Philip Island for that matter. I heard that the guy who plays Thor is from there and the mayor is a penguin.
  • Amazing wine and delicious cheese platter
