Stunning location, definitely the 'Black Sheep' of the family doing very well indeed. Nice wines and great service. But in the end the views speak for themselves.

Have to say that the cellar door is perfectly located among the vines with stunning views. We were a small group of seven who had prebooked a tasting, and initially everything went well. Our host, Nathaniel was very personable and I enjoyed the wines. However, as there were only two staff working, He had to go off and attend to... More

We loved this cellar door and it definitely appealed to our "Black Sheep" side. It's located in lovely spot with great views from cellar door. Our hostess, Carolyn was professional and so friendly and welcoming. Definitely my favourite cellar door in the Mclaren Vale. Highly recommended.

A beautiful setting, very light and airy with a view over the entire vineyard. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable, we sampled some wonderful wine and purchased a few bottles including a cordial for the kids. We look forward to many more visits.

We dropped by for some wine tasting and was blown away by setting and friendly tasting staff. They have a great set up and you feel very welcome. There is a table which shows their different vineyards with grape types together with the actual soil from each vineyard. It gives you a real understanding on why the tastes differ. You... More
