Beautiful is the only way to describe the drive down the tree lined driveway to a gorgeous homestead. Maria was there to greet us. What a gem this lady is - she can't do enough to make your stay perfect and her breakfasts were excellent. We had complete access to the wine in the bar area and were joined by the owner Denham who is as interesting as his property. The St Mary wine was amazingly good and such interesting stories shared by Denham at " wine o'clock " certainly added a personal touch. Maria and Denham were excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. They recommended the best restaurants and wineries. Denham even organised bringing Lucy the Lamb on a leash to see us after we said we would love to see the 8 week old lamb. Our 3 nights there were lovely and the accommodation is of a very high quality - towels, sheets, cleanliness (actually spotless), just everything right down to maintenance. The photos on the website are very true - in fact more picturesque. I will add one photo showing the beautiful Lucy!!
We will be back.
