We did the self guided tour which was entertaining but not as interesting as taking a proper wine tour of course but I don't think it is designed for that kind of thing. It's more for basic information probably suited to school tours. The best part is lunch and the 'debit' style card that allows you to help yourself to... More

The wine centre is OK, but better to visit the wineries. Probably a good education tour for schools who have limited time. Catering at functions is very good.

Not sure what we were expecting but it wasn't what we got, actually we got nothing at all from the experience as there is nothing there? A few empty function rooms, a restaurant/cafe and what looks like a massive wine cellar with no public access?

Went for a conference reception, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Pleasant surrounds, and good staff. Nibbles were of a high quality.

Wine tasting events are great as with the food. Good place to take visitors for sampling our wines. Lovely to be able to sit outside in the warmer months with a glass or two of wine.

The architecture of the building looks like a barrel of wine. Lots of great wines to taste. You need to pay for it. Mini museum of wine production and facts displayed and entry is free. There is a cafe and serves food to go with your wine tasting.

Have been there for a school diner and the set up was amazing. Food was good, especially for vegetarians. Of course the wine is great.

Went for a big gala dinner last month, the place is pretty big, customer service was pretty average and the food was average as well. there is not many parking available so you either park far away from this location or you need to book a taxi
