  • We went to a wine tasting with chocolate. A marvel. The place is quiet, giving a feeling of being at home. Impeccable service! Worth the visit.

  • lovely wine tasting session with oliver, chocolates were nice too
  • We really loved this vineyard, the wines were incredible. Their wine ‘Jem’ is top 3% internationally and was very good. We walked through the wine making areas where they were actually making wine, de stemming, and mashing grapes - which made for a very unique experience. The service was also one of the best in the wineries we visited. Overall very authentic and enjoyable experience.
  • Had the most wonderful time at Waterford Wine Estates yesterday where we did the ‘wine safari tour.’ The whole experience was made even more enjoyable due to our wine guide, Trent, along with his side kick, Pinot Noir, the dog! Every question we asked, Trent knew the answer to. The wine was exceptional and would have no hesitation of recommending this experience to anyone. Thank you Trent!
  • Absolutely love their wine and chocolate pairing. I also think their accompanying explanations are really good, but this might of course be depending on your sommelier/wine steward. Their tastings happen outside, which makes it also an excellent trip for a day out with nice weather.
  • Great wine tasting, lovely scenery. Sasha helped us very good, explained everything about the wines really well and patience. We loved the Chardonnay as well as the chocolate and wine pairings. Not the cheapest one though, but it's worth it.
