    We felt like royalty! We were initially being helped by a lovely man, he had to translate for another group briefly and a lady helped us in his absence. We loved the open fire and the views. It still ...  more »

    Busy and commercial feel. Great fireplace and staff were all smiling! Bought a bottle and enjoyed all I tasted!

    I went to its cellar door today to taste some wines and it was an amazing experience (also free). The staff was really really kind! I absolutely recomende it!

    Huge selection for tasting so you'll likely find one you like. Professional but not warm staff, somehow feels touristy, commercialized. Do not expect the chance of a coffee if you did not book in for their minimum-spend restaurant. The grounds are set up for free picnics with mats & chairs but the view is only okay. The cube monstrosity - innovative but seems out of place.

    Lovely setting but we must've caught the staff on an off day judging by other reviews. They weren't particularly helpful or warm, especially relative to other cellar doors in the area.

    Hopeless service. We were served flat wines and had 3 staff in 20 minutes that couldn't give us the time of day. We have been a long supporter of their wines but thanks will never buy your wines again.
