When we called in, it was very busy and crowded but we found a spot and had a couple of tastings. I presented the voucher and it was no trouble and I... More

We visited the vineyard last weekend and were greeted by Dan who guided us through our tasting. I don't know how much Dan gets paid, but he is worth every cent as we had a great time and were treated to a fantastic tasting experience. Complimentary bread, dukkah, olive oil and balsamic further enhanced the experience as we were able... More

Excellent wine selection particularly the fortifieds. Staff freely shared about the history of the vineyard, six generations strong! A most interesting place.

We had a couple of birthdays to celebrate. Family with numerous younger kids. They got chalk to draw on the cement ... Colouring stuff and a garden to run about in. The platters were the best I've had for a long time. Recommended 😊

Fabulous fun, Great atmosphere, Superb wines. It's worth finding this place out if not for the relaxed vibe and great knowledge of the cellar staff. The wines are the best.
