  • Always love coming here. I walk in and am immersed in a whole new world. The decor, lighting and music at to the cozy atmosphere. The views are amazing even in wet weather and the fireplaces are inviting when there is a chill. There is a playpen I can lose my kids too as well while I drink my wine.
  • Horrible experience! Our family went to the vineyard with our lovely dog. We were wandering around the vineyard with our dog (upon permission) and the owner's dog came out of no where and attacked our dog. We were all traumatized by the incident. Our dog had to have injections and had to be on antibiotics to recover from the infection that was caused by the bite from the other dog. Owner was informed about the incident and had no empathy towards the situation and acted very arrogant and rude. I will not recommend this vineyard to anyone, especially to those who have pets or kids. Because this dog is so aggressive that it can definitely attack a little kid as well. They should not have left such a wild dog without a leash. Very irresponsible! Extremely poor management!
  • Worst night out. The website says open from 10am to 10pm! They should have answered or returned our call! Very disappointed. My sister got us vouchers to go there today the 19th August2017. Made a reservation for 4:30pm. We called In the morning to make the reservation and we called them at 4:30pm to say we were running late. We left a message. We arrive at the place with my sister along with my nieces boyfriend from Canada. To which the lady says very rudely that their kitchen had technical difficulties and then said their chef left and they are closing. Wether that's true or not! And she was rude. She said she didnt want to be the last one there to lock up! And that she advised our appointment was at 3pm! So they got our resavation wrong. Which we called in the morning and called at 4:30pm to say we running late So why did she not return our call. She then very rudely says don't linger I want to go home early and lock up and Go Home! We have never felt so rushed to eat in our lives and when we left we found her together with the two waitresses drinking and having having wine at the wine tasting area. Which we had booked for too! Also while we were there, two other girls wanted to come in to which i noticed they were turned away, but seeing as we were sitting there what if they only wanted a glass of wine, they had closed the tills so while we were there two other people could have had a glass wine more money for the company! The problem i have is regardless they should have done what normal resturants do answer there phone or return our call or answer our calls like normal resturants and when we walked out they were drinking having wine!.Thank Acension vineyards worst birthday dinner ever, and for a bad experience for someone from Canada!
  • Had the fabulous gourmet platter with a glass of wine and a beer.Great food,service and overall atmosphere on a dreary winters day.Wine was one of the vest vionigers I have had.Lovely staff too
