First of all let me say well done on achieving a Certificate of Excellence Award. Every time I go to Masons, I am met like a long lost friend. There has been a change of staff in the last few months and they are carrying on the great service provided by the previous young couple.
I attended the Harvest Dinner, held on the 28th June and while the weather was wild and chilly that night, the atmosphere inside was one of warmth and good cheer. I am sure everyone who attended, approx 30 in total, had a very memorable evening. Good food, delicious wine, served with good old fashioned hospitality.
While they don't have outside dining as such, there is an area that has blinds that can be opened in the warmer months, giving the best of both worlds, as you don't have to compete with flies as it is screened.
So if you are visiting this beautiful part of the world, a visit to Masons is a must.

Thank you for taking the time to write a TA review and offer your comments on Mason's café goings on. As you noticed we have welcomed some new talents to the team to continue the professional yet friendly service matched with great food and wine offered at Mason Wines Cellar Door & Cafe. We have had a great response from those who attended our special evening event to celebrate the change of seasons with a winter harvest feast and hope to offer other intimate dining occasions more regularly. Thanks again. Kind regards, Mason Wines Cellar Door Cafe team.

I have been to Mason Wines three times and I've enjoyed my visits more each time. The food is lovely and fresh and the menu offers a good range of snacks and meals. The Persian Spiced Cake with Pistachio ice-cream is fabulous. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxing, the view over the dam and the vineyard is lovely, the service is excellent, and the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. And the wine....you know how sometimes you taste wine at a cellar door and love it so you buy a bottle to take home only to find that it tastes nothing like it did at the winery? Well, I have bought Mason wines on each visit and I enjoy them just as much at home as I did at their cellar door and restaurant. Mason Wines is definitely on my favourites list.

Thank you for posting such a wonderful review full of praise. We are so happy to hear you have visited us on a number of occasions to find the same country hospitality matched with great food and of course fine wines. You may also like to visit our latest Mason Wines venture on Mt Tamborine where we hope to offer a similar top cellar door and vineyard restaurant experience.

Great service and people, lovely environment. Good atmosphere and variety of wines. We have gone around all the vineyards in the area and this one is one of the best.

I was recently treated to Mothers' Day lunch at Mason's and can reliably report that it did not disappoint. The food and service were of a high standard and the setting and facilities are attractive and well maintained. Well done guys!
