  • Thanks to Thomas we had a brilliant and unforgettable time and experience at Waterford. I will highly recommend you do the #2 or 3 hike/trail. You're more than just a sommelier. I look forward to next time.
  • Quietly excellent. Went to seven wineries, and this was by far the best one. It is an incredibly beautiful place with friendly service and a relaxing atmosphere. The wines were the best we had throughout the whole trip, and the chocolate pairing was phenomenal. Cannot recommend it enough.
  • Absolutely beautiful estate. Friendly, professional service. Such a pleasure to visit Waterford!
  • Lovely experience! Eamón and Chad were our servers and had extensive knowledge and humor, which added to our experience. We would definitely come back and recommend.
  • Stunning wine estate. Eco friendly. Great pairing of wines with chocolate.
