The first stop is the Elms vineyard and the famous Block 3 and Block 5. We also watched part of the wine-making process. Then we went into a cellar where all...More

Unlike many vineyards the unique, quality and 'boutique' Felton Rd is visited by appointment only. When you make that appointment your visit is both a personal tour of their wine making process and a warm and informative wine tasting session at a preset table overlooking...More
