Tasting was fantastic, informed but not pushy. Great location and friendly staff. Primarily just a great winery, Echelon and envoy range a must... especially the riesling. Brush up on your morse code to fully appreciate the branding.

Wife and I had a tour here and really enjoyed it. The guide was very knowledgeable about all aspects of this family run company. Really enjoyed all aspects of the tour, the grounds, the winery and the tasting. Well worth the visit. Since returning home we have purchased from the company through their local distributor that's how impressed we were.... More

We stopped here on a tour and we're glad we did. The winery is beautiful and makes every attempt to be Eco-friendly. The building is an interesting architecture, quite attractive. The wines we tried were very tasty too. We were given a tour of the winery itself and it was quite fun to see how the wines are made, bottled,... More

Husband and I enjoyed our visit here - there was a good selection of wines to taste (at no charge), the setting was serene (vineyards, manicured lawns, sculptures and water features), the hostess was knowledgeable and friendly, and there was shady car parks (great for a hot day!). There were toys to keep younger children occupied while parents tasted the... More

There was a reasonable selection of wines to try, and the staff member was knoweldgeable and helpful. Several of their wines are enjoyable as is their olive oil . The setting is pleasant as is the drive to the winery.
