We had a personalised, friendly, educational experience that was second to none. It was truly amazing to have someone of Reg's experience, with so much passion for what they produce. Their uncompromising pride in their product is special to witness first hand. We highly recommend this as one of the "must do" on a trip to South Australia.

Go and see Tracy at the cellar door - she knows everything about the wines and loves a chat too. The best wine they produce is the best Shiraz we have ever tasted. It's amazing and the price is tempting! We will be back!

SENSATIONAL Wines, SENSATIONAL Service, and a SENSATIONAL Afternoon. Only tried about 4 wines as I was driving. The Sparkling Shiraz in my opinion was the standout and probably the best in Australia - SENSATIONAL.
