I have worked at Highfield previously but have gone back after being employed. I must say the staff has a great appreciation for each other and their clients. The wine is boutique and great! The food is locally sourced and great as well. Top notch organization from bottom to top!!

I actually chose to stop at this winery, because I read somewhere that they served lunch. I was a little disappointed that lunch was only an antipasto platter, but we decided to try it since we were there. I must say that it was delicious and the staff took pride in the source of their food. The views were fantastic... More

My mother and I decided to visit as we were in the area, and on another trip in this area we had gone up to the winery and loved the view. It's such a nice building and view that this time I thought I should buy a glass while we sit outside and enjoy the day and the vista. I... More

We came to this winery on the recommendation of an employee of another winery, saying that they offered really nice wine and cheese antipasto platters. We arrived just before they stopped serving, but they let us order anyway. Located in a lovely old chateau, we decided to go up to the top of the tower while waiting for our platter.... More

We had a lovely 20 mins or so wine tasting and then sat outside for lunch. There was only a choice of 2 platters, both very similar but delicious. It was our first time trying their Sauvignon Blanc and a bottle went down a treat while sitting outside and soaking up the view. Sun hats and cream provided for those... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. For me it was a bit tricky to find, but worth the hunt. In a family of three, with two who have food allergies it was a pleasure to have knowledgeable wait staff. Lovely wine matching suggestions were made, and they whipped us a dairy free sorbet for my 6 year... More

Friendly staff, lovely winery and looked like a great place for lunch although we were only there for the wine tasting. The winery is almost like a little castle and has beautiful views across its winery and the local area.

Fantastic setting, awesome staff-friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our wine tasting and lunch was delicous. Started with bread, oil and dukkah which was good. Both of us had the pork belly-this was divine as was the apple salad-well presented. Lime infused panna cotta was also good. Would return here and take friends for the overall dining experience.
