  • Lovely grounds but it was a poor experience as the staff had no interest in serving us. Would not recommend.
  • Excellent service from Thomas was busy serving others as well as our group and was apologetic yet very professional knew his brand knew his product excellent service took the time to get into a conversation to know us as we are from melbourne highly recommend this place 👌
  • Brigitte, Megan & Andrew all have been hosting my clients extremely well, great place and under rated, this is a "MUST DO", book a wine tour or book with them direct for the Premium Wine Tastings, I recommend a tour so you do not fear of being over the limit. The Gardens are amazing and the history of the Chateau also one of S.A's places to visit.
  • Loved every sip of the place. Go see Thomas and he will take care of you.
  • Really enjoyed the Heritage Tour and lovely wines. Beautiful buildings.
