Lovely stroll around the vineyard then free wine tasting. Friendly, welcoming knowledgeable staff. Definitely worth a visit, I'll be going back.

If you are interested in wine you will appreciate this visit. Myself and my wife were greeted by the team and the owner gave us a very detailed and enjoyable tour. Had some wine tasting at the end. Very friendly inviting owners. Lovely vineyard.
