We really enjoyed our wine tasting at Bannock Brae. As it was a little too windy to sit outside, we sat inside where we could stay warm (but still enjoy the view). While wine tastings can sometimes be intimidating, Catherine made us feel welcome and...More

Thank you Wayne. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit, in spite of the hot weather. Believe it or not, it is currently 12 degrees outside. A welcome relief from the heat.
This was a highlight of our trip to Cromwell. A lovely wine tasting experience with a very friendly family. We sat outside with a beautiful view and got to taste some delicious wines. Highly recommend this winery to visit.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit. Do come again if you are in the area.
Very nice location and very nice people who talk with passion of their wines. Their Pinot was good and I like the unfiltered aspect of the wine. I also liked the Resiling which was oak aged- something different ;)
