We stayed here (2 couples) earlier this year and are just getting around to writing our review. Overall we had a very enjoybable stay and would definitely go back. The property is surrounded by farms and a bit off the beaten path, but still only a 5 minute's drive into Healesville. The best of both worlds. We went for a walk in the morning and surprised a pack of kangaroos just up the path from the vineyard.
The cottages are full of character - cozy, clean and well-appointed with a full kitchen, outdoor seating and BBQ. The beds were comfortable and as it was chilly outside, we made use of the electric blankets, fireplace, and spa.
If you are looking for a good wine tour or even just good recommendations on local wineries, go with Greg. He was very accomodating on short notice (we only booked the day before) and very knowledgeable about the local wineries, taking us to some lesser known but fantastic places. He is a very friendly, interesting guy and aside from the professional side of the tour, we really enjoyed spending the day with him.
Thanks for a great weekend getaway, we'll be back!
