We had had a tasting a while back in the old main building which was good, but now situated in the winery it feels too impersonal and oriented to groups. The staff are fine , the chairs around the bar uncomfortable the latest wines (2015 Whites) too thin and need some maturing to gain (hopefully) some body. The history was... More

My family and I had lunch at Dornier last week and ended up wine tasting as well. The restaurant was pretty busy but the service was excellent. We were quite a big party and all enjoyed the food and wine emensely. The setting in the valley is truly stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed the outing.

I stayed at the Dornier Homestead for a night and was very, very pleasantly surprised by the Dornier estate. The house itself is an old colonial building that has recently (and tastefully) been refurbished but which still has many of its original fittings. The winery and restaurant serve a great selection of food and offer excellent wine tasting (which is... More

We had a 80th birthday celebration with 21 people for lunch. The staff were friendly and professional. The service was excellent. The food was good, with all 21 of us served at the same time. We can highly recommend a visit to Dornier, Bodega restaurant, for a large party. The setting is beautiful too.

Having noticed that Dornier was seventh on the top 12 architecturally designed wine estates in the world a stop was necessary. Wonderful service, from an extremely knowledgeable server. We were introduced to their tapas with a bottle of wine. Perfect combination with a perfect view over the estate and the majestic mountains in the background. Wonderful wine. This was my... More

Went here for lunch and did some wine tasting as well. The food was ok, no more no less and the wine tasting was alright. We tried five wines and they served them all in the same glass. Would have been nine with a new glass at least when you go from a white wine to a red.

Our party of 4 adults and 3 children spent 2 nights at the Dornier Homestead, since our son was celebrating his 40th birthday party at Dornier restaurant. While the large celebration was a huge success, and the food and service impeccable, the same cannot be said of the accommodation. We opted for staying on the estate because of the convenience,...
