“Now this is more like it!”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

The winery is located in an unassuming building in an industrial estate in Cromwell. But don't be put off! The wines were all most interesting, and some were truly excellent.

We had made an appointment with Simon Beck, the sales and marketing manager, and he talked us through the full range of their wines, of which we tasted most. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we made a further appontment for the following Monday, when a wine loving friend was going to be there.

Once again, Simon took the trouble to explain all the wines, and go through an even fuller range this time.

We rated this winery very highly indeed. The fact that Rudi Bauer is Austrian in origin shows in the restrained elegance of his wines. Their vintage traditional method sparkling wine was quite as good a sparkler as I've had for a long time. WAY better than most supermarket champagnes, in my view. It was one of only two I was able to buy to fly away with.
