Sunset winery is a wine cellar, where you can taste some wines (included sparkly wine, so good!) and enjoy the beautiful views of the island coast (we can do it, but I recommend you that if you can, go there in sunset time). It is a perfect place, where you can relax, drink a very good wine, see a very... More

Although a limited selection of wine, the wine was lovely. The service was also great and it was lovely to sit and look out over the beautiful landscape. Highly recommend a visit.

We had the best time at this place! We left the kids at the rental house a few mins away and drove up the winding drive to an absolutely gorgeous view. The winery is homely but tastefully decked out. The wines are all good - but the standout is the sparkling red. We could resist a platter full of local... More

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
