We visited 3 vineyards, VJB exceeded our high expectations In every way; Each Estate Wine was truly a taste you wanted to experience again and again. We joined the Wine Club and have received our first shipment, we opened our first bottle and said " oh my, just like we remember - Awesome!"

What a great find that was referred to us by another vineyard! We might not have stopped if the great person at Arrowood hadn't directed us there.

We visited 3 wineries on our wine tour and VJB was the favorite. In fact, we wish we could have spent more time here. It is like visiting a small Italian courtyard with shops and bar and amazing food. The Prosecco was the best!
