  • Beautiful surroundings, great wines - the Sparking Shiraz is the bom-diggity! What made the experience memorable for these 6 Victorian Bogans was the fun and banter from Troy. Well done Troy, your kno...  more »

  • This place has had renovations since a lot of these pictures up here , and it was amazing in side and so grand is the build definitely worth the stop in for a wine tasting with Troy and a great picture opportunity. Thanks for a great afternoon
  • Greg and Amy were absolutely awesome. We were given some sound advice and also after buying a few wines they were happy for us to stick around and have a game of croquet. Must see experience and amazing wines always a favourite and will be back soon. Thanks again
  • The worst service and treatment by staff of any winery we have been to, and we have been to more than 50 in the past 6-months. We were ignored, the staff was condescending, they never smiled or seemed interested, and there was no information about the wines we were tasting. After 30 minutes and only tasting 3 wines we walked out.
  • Good wine but staff were very rude. They insulted us and were very condensing. We have been to many wineries but we have never encounted such carelessness.
  • Loved it, wonderful gardens, lovely friendly staff & the wine, so good 🙂
