  • This turned out to be our favourite stop of the day. A real family atmosphere with the winemaker and his wife in attendance. The wines are great value for money.  more »
  • Wonderful wine tasting experience with a fantastic cheese and meat platter. Best part is the personal touch and family feel from the husband and wife team who spend time with each guest party...  more »

  • Came to visit the farm for a wedding, had a great time there. I believe a family owned farm, looked after well by everyone, food was great, views are amazing. Just overall a really nice experience of the venue. The wedding was actually stunning, Definitely a recommended place for a small humble wedding for anyone looking at this venue.
  • Excellent experience with owner led front of house. And amazing wines, the Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay 2019 don't disappoint
  • Excellent host, wines are great and very well priced for the quality and vintage. A must visit. Great for kids as well.
