Staff can't save a booking or confirm, owner unwilling to admit fault or support in helping out a staff mess up resulting in unhappy customers. I'm sure the wine is amazing; but the staff are inept and owner evidently needs customer service training.

We spent a good hour at the Cellar door tasting beautiful wines typical to the region and I must say they exceeded my expectations so much that we ended up buying a substantial supply to add to our collection. Helpful staff thank you

We love to visit the winery for a taste of the wines or eat at the restaurant in every opportunity we are going to Mornington Peninsula. The wines are great,particular, the Pinot Noir.

The lady taking us through the wine tasting had zero class. Just talk about the wine, no one wants to hear your judgments on us or other groups you served that day. However the wine was nice and we bought a few cases.
