  • One of my favourite spots ever. Wonderful cellar door with amazing selection & good banter. Food is delicious and fresh. Great for groups. Great spots to sit in or outdoors. Highly recommended. Get onto the wine club for the most amazing wine selection!
  • Disappointed. We check in and headed straight to the cellar door to do some wine tasting. We noticed some people were already there so we had a quick look at the restaurant for later that evening and then headed back to the cellar. The couple doing tastings were having a conversation with the bar tender. My partner and I walked around the cellar reading information about the wines and the company, trying to get eye contact with the bar tender but nothing, the whole time we were there we did not get acknowledged. Not a hi or I will be with you in a moment or anything. So, we left. I was quite disappointed as this is where we had decided to stay. We ended up going to another winery and had lunch and bought 5 bottles of their wine. The following day we wanted to check out around 8:30am and reception wasn’t opened. We tried to call the number multiple times to ask where we should leave the key but not answer. My partner ended up leaving a message to say this is where we have left the key and then called later in the day to confirm if they had found it with still no answer. We stayed in the garden room right near the cellar the room was cosy but customer service is everything! We could have purchased some wine and food from there and recommended the vineyard to others but without a good experience we are left with a bad taste in our mouth.
  • Excellent service well prepared meals and substantial
  • Great wines and the location is beautiful.
  • Love the rooms here!
