Spent a couple of hours at this small vineyard. Our host was so knowledgeable and friendly and the wines were superb, particularly the 2014 Pinot Noir!

Beautiful spot with some good wines. A big thank you to Chris for being hospitable and accomodating while we waited for our friends to arrive.

Great spot in the Gibbston Valley. Much quieter than the other wineries but the wines are superb and so is the setting. Enjoy a game of bocce sipping a world class Pinot, then settle in for a fantastic platter. Yum yum yum

Walked in for a tasting, but were completely ignored as he was too busy with 1 other tasting. They look interesting but service isn’t great. Went to Peregrine winery instead just down the road, nice wines (especially the dry Riesling) and very good service.

There is a tasting fee of $15 per person, which is only redeemable or refundable if you purchase at least two bottles of wine. In my opinion, this is excessive. I think visitors to the cellar door should be aware of this before arriving, to...More
