  • I love this place, so peaceful in nature and I absolutely love shooting wedding here. Food is always great and I'm in love with their fresh green olives you get at the farm deli. Staff is energetic and friendly.
  • What can I say? 5 Star!!! We had an arranged picnic lunch in the Rose Garden. The food arrived prepacked and beautifully presented
  • Lovely place, offers a number of activities, such as mountain biking, horse back riding, wine tasting, picnics. The restaurants are amazing, impeccable food and service. We stayed at the Orchards Cottages, which were simple but comfortable, new and well kept with a lovely pool right in front and a bonfire in one of the nights. Would definitely go back!
  • Awesome Winery Estate to visit and to know his History. The wine Tasting under the big tree is fantastic. You can even have a lunch/picnic on the grass. Stunning place!
  • Our guide Shawn was really nice. He shared a lot with us. We really appreciated the wine tasting in this place. Many thanks.
