  • Take the time to stop and enjoy an informative wine tasting and create your own platter with amazing selections of cheeses, meats etc. The wines were great also. Breath taking views and Conrad and Sam provided exceptional hospitality. Don't drive past well worth a visit.
  • Fantastic place to stop for a bite to eat. Wine tasting. Sit outside enjoy the view with a cheese platter and drink. Kids young or old can feed the donkeys and play with the puppy's. very nice Honey and pickles also available for sale
  • Halfway through the first bottle.. refreshing... crisp... I'm loving Hells Gate.
  • Lovely little winery to taste local wines only available from here. Had a fantastic cheese platter with some salami and fruit and a bottle of Sauvingon blanc. Views are spectacular and the staff are very helpful.
  • Stopped in here by chance. Had a great wine tasting, so much so that we just had to get a glass of the chardonnay each. The olives in lemon oil complemented it perfectly. Great location to sit out, soak up the sun, take in the fabulous view and enjoy the delicious wine. We purchased a bottle if the chardonnay to take home and are only sorry we didn't buy more.
