The lady was so welcoming and the wines were good, especially the sparkling shiraz. Everything is very reasonably priced, the food is great and the views are just incredible. There's a reason they call it Sunset Winery, but if you can't get there then, the views are amazing all day.

Perched on hill with fabulous views, this winery is aptly named, and easy to get to. Staff friendly and wines explained during tastings. Prices very reasonable and the Sparkling Shiraz is definitely one to include in your tasting and purchase. Have been there twice and I'm sure we'll be back again.

We really enjoyed the sunset winery. It was a beautiful experience with a beautiful view. If you are going with kids they provide the kids with activities. The wines are good but our best was the sparkling shiraz. The staff is very friendly.

The tasting is free and all of the wine is good. But the Bubbly Shiraz is amazing! I normally don't go for red wine but the infused bubbles were something special. She let us have a second helping of that one and we bought a bottle of it. The deck is very nice. We were on our way to dinner... More

The views are amazing - it is a great spot for a glass of wine on the deck. They do platters if you are hungry. The wines are good, a small but good range.

Our group only had a few wine enthusiasts, but we all enjoyed the experience at Sunset Winery. The great experience we had is mainly due to the beautiful view offered at the site, and although we do not drink wine often, we did enjoy the tasting platter because the wines were pretty good (again, we aren't enthusiasts so some may...
