  • I attended a hen's party at Peacock Sky Vineyard. The spread was gorgeous; it had a couple of cheeses, hummus, some rather bland meatloaf, roasted red peppers which appeared to come from a jar but added a pretty color, salami, dried apricots, cranberry chutney, bread, crackers and a couple of other items I likely can't recall. Regarding the wine, the chardonnay was interesting specifically because the malo-lactic process wasn't taken to full intensity. It was a pretty chardonnay but IMO it's over priced. The remaining tastings were unmemorable but drinkable. For the Hen's party they put together a four stage quiz on wine. The questions were very advanced for a Hen's party. They did offer a prize at the end but it took quite a bit of our time. The winery may be great for couple looking to enjoy a quiet tasting. Although they offer services for Bachelorette Parties they're not actually prepared nor do they have the right attitude to take on such an event. We were in a large room which was vacant when we arrived. The event was pre-arranged and we were expected to be there for 2.5 hours. About an hour into the party a couple took a seat, they appeared to also be enjoying themselves. The quiz had just ended and they gave the group a prize. The volume wasn't unreasonable considering the event and the conversation was pretty much what you'd expect for such a celebration. When a picture was taken with one of the props supplied by the maid of honor, we were told to leave. It was truly disappointing. Although Peacock Sky provides the option for Bachelorette celebrations, it's not an appropriate venue. This is definitely a better selection for couple's or small groups of individuals who want a pretty location but aren't too fussed about the wine.
  • Super charming setting with the small airfield next to it. Very good sommelier who led us through the winepairing
  • Awesome spot with a great wine tasting with food pairing. We were lucky enough to have the owner taking us through, so she had an excellent knowledge and did an absolutely excellent job of explaining everything. We then sat down to a beautiful lunch with a lovely wine selected from the tasting. Everything was thoughtfully prepared and presented. The place was spot on! Highly recommend it!
  • Average food that was luke warm (meatballs), bad seating (stools) very disappointing
  • Went here for a hens and were honestly blown away by the service. Passionate, caring owners make so much difference, yet the food and wine are first class also. Will be back!
