  • As always we stopped in to taste and to by some of their fantastic wine, had a great tasting with the staff and bought some lovely MkII Pinot to go home with. Thanks so much and see you next year.

  • Extremely knowledgable staff, and exceptional wines. The Pinor Noir is the best ive had!
  • Fantastic wine! Fantastic front man! They know their wine. I loved visiting here. Great information. Friendly
  • Great wines and nice to try their unoaked Chardonnay which is really good! It's not just about the reds! But don't be an idiot and try park on the road there so you can take a photo...
  • Even if the wines were terrible, this one is worth it just for the incredible cliffside drive. Luckily the wines are fantastic. I have already recommended this place, and will do so again.
  • Friendly people. Tasting "donation" seems high at $10 but at least they donate it to charity. Nice selection of wines but quite expensive. The road in its interesting, you expect Wil-e-coyote to chase Road Runner past any second. Great views. Picturesque location overlooking AJ Hackett Bungee.
