  • Very disappointed to see the wines are more expensive at the property than in shops (same wine, same year, same name, same vineyard, same same). The entry level wines are not so good, especially the ones they make you taste in their cave tour (another disappointment - a tour guided by someone that has no knowledge into winemaking). The single vineyards and their top level wines are excellent, you will need to pay 15 to 25 dollars more if you want to have a taste. The cheese shop is very expensive. We bought 2 cheeses and a baguette to take home and we had to pay as much as we paid for a cheese board for two in a restaurant (same amount of cheese and some extras on the restaurant board).
  • The wines and restaurant are actually pretty good but they prioritise their wine and cave tours too much, it's a bit of a tourist trap. Most other wineries talk to you about the wine during the tasting, they just serve you the drinks and hand you a card with descriptive blurbs. The cave is cool but charging people $18 to see where you store your wine is pretty silly. This is free at most other wineries
  • Very patience master of wine introducing their selection of wine available. Must visit their winery caves - worth every penny! 🍷🍷🍷 They have outdoor seating and cheese shop too.. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
  • Attended concerts here for the past 5 years and they are absolutely fantastic! Great venue with gorgeous scenery.
  • ok but the restaurant food is very overpriced for what it is. my fish/seafood stew today had more potato than fish in it, and the same with the octopus salad. wouldnt go back.
