  • This also happens to be the home now of my stock standard, all time favourite, but still affordable "go to" red, their signature Cabernet Shiraz Blend. The large, giant bottled wine (as per my photos)...  more »

  • Busy. The young guy who served us was awesome, knowledgeable and helpful, and was excellent and giving the attention to each group even though he was having to serve many people at once. Wines were lovely. There was a nice looking restaurant and very picturesque surrounds. But for us this is not our preferred style of winery so it was just a bit too busy and commercialised, would rate 3.5 if there was the option.
  • Great wine/food but it feels a little overly busy/crowded. Not a problem as such, just not what I look for when I visit a winery. Would be perfect if you had younger children or a large group.
  • Nice wines but now charges a $5 tasting fee refundable on purchase
  • There are so many ripping good wineries in the Vale & Wirra Wirra is right up with the best of them. What a glorious place to share a bottle of church block with some friends over a platter of regional produce on a lazy sunday arvo. This place is just so lovely. Excellent food and service from the recently opened cafe, world class wines and the building and surrounds are just wow wow wow. They even a catapult. Do yourself a favour and just go.
  • Lovely wine and interesting, quirky history of the winery - it was founded by eternal bachelor, eccentric and cricketer Robert Strangways Wigley, whose cat's name was Mrs. Wigley :) We had a tour with wine testing (the wine was great, the more expensive it is the better it tastes :D ) and also the background story about how the vineyards operate (learned heaps of interesting facts). There is even a watermelon trebuchet, which still gets used once a year I think, and I would love to come back and see it in action :) It is best to visit the vineyards on a nice day too as the scenery of the place itself and the area is just beautiful!
