Visited in October. Sat outside in the afternoon sun. Gave it 8.9/10. They brought out a selection of wines and introduced us to some new options. A great experience.

We had a wondeful tasting and chat with Juanita! She was so friendly and offered us our choice of a range of wines for tasting. The sparkling cuvee was our favorite!

We were given a very personalized wine tasting by Juanita when we came to Nautilus. We enjoyed the wines and the newly renovated interior. What a great place to visit all year round!

Our group enjoyed the quick visit to the estate. Sampled some of the local wines and had a look around the estate which on the day we were there was magnificent. Very nice wine, the Pinot especially was very refreshing. Well worth a drop in.
