We stopped here on a bike tour and really enjoyed visiting with Simone. She was very friendly and knowledgeable and of course we bought wine!

This was the first stop on our winery tour, and it might be hard to top! The tasting room is lovely and Anne, the retail manager, was super friendly. We settled on the Plateau Pinot Noir, which we enjoyed under the arbor, complete with the picnic we had packed. A lovely introduction to the local wineries!

Was the pick of numerous vineyards visited in the Bridge Pa district. Covered our varied palettes from Pinot Gris Sparkling to their surprising little treasure, a Cut Cane Merlot

An amazing shop filled with great food, snacks and gorgeous chocolates to accompany their fine wines. The cheese larder was filled with a superb range of cheeses, some of which we tasted. A great tasting with some very nice wines. Excellently presented by the estate staff.

We came here on a wine tour through Grape Escape Wine Tours for a wine tasting. The venue was spectacular and the lady presenting the wines Anne was really knowledgeable and very funny. The wines were all really great. The shop sold heaps of things that would make great gifts as well as wine. Great time.

The driveway approaching the winery really sets the scene beautifully. Set among the vineyards and against hills, this is a striking winery. We enjoyed the wine and got some excellent recommendations for other places to visit from the cellar door staff.

Was not sure what to elect from Sileni so was pleasantly surprised by their quality range. Really enjoyed their Pinot Gris, Rose, Cab franc, Pinot noir and Merlot blends. Will be looking out for them in the UK and Anne was a great hostess.

recently I took family members to Seleni Estate Winery and the service was fantastic! the lady was knowledgable and was generous with the tasting! I ended up buying excellent value case of wine myself. We were able to use a room to enjoy a glass of wine with crackers and cheese purchased there. Most accomodating.
