Wow, a view to die for😀; nice wines and a friendly staff member who helped us with our wine tasting. The sparkling Shiraz was a nice afternoon wine to enjoy on the deck. Platter of prawns; what more could you want? All the best for the coming vintage. Cheers!

Close to the ferry terminal. We stoped for lunch which was excellant. Their wine tasting tray was very nice. Sat outside with a great view. Were not there st Sunset but could appreciate that from there the Sunset must be spectacular.

Dropped in to do a bit of wine tasting and ended up buying three bottles. Service was professional and friendly. The wine is excellent and if I had not already had lunch, I would have eaten here as what was on offer looked fantastic. The steep driveway could do with a bit of attention as it was quite rough for... More

We called into the winery very early one morning to find the lady there extremely friendly & customer orientated - customer service was excellent. Unfortunately we couldn't get back for lunch, but the platters looked superb & the view was stunning. Definitely recommend & you MUST try their sparkling shiraz.

We spent a relaxing hour or so here one afternoon. After tasting a few of the local wines - they make it but buy the grapes from other vineyards so don't expect to see any vines - we bought a platter of food and sat looking at the wonderful view. The platter was made up of local produce and was... More

Awesome view. Friendly , knowledgable staff member when we were there. Very reasonably priced wine at $20 per bottle or $25 to have there. It's worth it simply for the outlook, the wine is good too. Wish they were open later, 5pm is not late enough to see the sunset. Didn't get to try the platters as got there just... More

I didn't partake in the wine, but they also have food and yummy coffee available. I had the gluten free carrot cake which was delicious. There is indoor seating, or a sundrenched verandah that takes in the full spendour of the area and ocean views off Penneshaw. Staff were very pleasant and friendly
