Not a specially beautiful chateau, but very nice welcome and great wines to taste. We did a wonderful walk from the beach of Oetangi and could continue through the vineyards walking down to Stoneyridge.

Overall: great wines, fun people, and a wonderful setting without any pretentiousness. A must-do if you're looking for a glass of wine, relaxing afternoon, and a walk through the vineyards. My only concern is whether I had enough shipped home!More

Favorite part was walking over to this vineyard. We loved the setting and relaxed atmosphere. We had a delicious pinot noir with cut puppies entertaining us. So glad we were able to get the 20 minute walk in from the neighboring vineyards!
