The grounds, the architecture combine to make this such a pleasant wine tasting. The tasting tables were set up under a giant oak tree. We sat around wrought iron tables with a line up of 5 wines with a knowledgeable guide to lead us.

We were taken to this place as part of a tour for delegates of an orthopaedic conference two weeks ago. Upon arrival, we walked from the luxury coach to the restaurant and were told free seating anywhere in the three tables provided. Although the appearance of the building and the interior looks well kept and beautiful, the same cannot be... More

Stopped over here for a spot of wine tasting and was delighted to see that they offered choclate and wine paired tasting. The really delightful thing is that they manufacture chocolates specifically to pair with their wines. The result is a unique experience.

The wine here is just average and the tasting experience is nothing special.

I had been looking forward to coming here. I know the wine is average, but I'd always wanted to visit the estate since I'd heard it was beautiful with an amazing restaurant. Coming here was very disappointing. The wine tasting experience poor. The gentleman just filled our glasses & disappeared. No talk on the wine or anything. Especially after the... More

We booked a picnic at this winery and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The location and picnic were superb, the staff couldn't have tried harder to make our visit memorable.
