The lunch which was absolutely delicious, I had the pasta of the day and my partner had the hare dish. The food and service where amazing and the wines to complement as suggested by... More

We arrived to find the outside restaurant busy with two large parties who had clearly been on a tour and tasting at the vineyard. We were shown to a table, given menus and water and then ignored whilst the staff and manager devoted their attention to the large tables and could be heard selling the virtues of the on site...

The kitchen created a gluten free option for me without hassle. The food was devine - best lamb I have eaten.... And I've eaten quite a bit! Would go back in... More

Ambience, great wine, very good food ... could we have asked for anything more? Only improved service from the wait- staff in the café. Our waitress came over to ask if we thought we could handle dessert, when in fact, our main course was still nowhere in sight! With some prompting the food arrived, but the cutlery did not. A...

We took a group tour of the winery. They store the wine in a cave that stays 55degrees F all year long. It's really a cool place to see. Got to try a couple of wines in the cave and learn from the staff. After our tour we went to the gift shop and tested out the wine chocolate. So... More

Stopped here midday on a Wine Tour and couldn't decide what to order from the inspired selection. All 5 of us chose something different and we were all delighted with our selections. I had a fabulous Wild Hare with a slightly sweet grain on the side and figs and apple salad to complement the chili heat seasoning. Divine in my... More

The hero of our experience is the signature white chocolate cheesecake. We usually have a main only to justify dessert, but always get blown away by the creative and delicious meals created by Sue & Mark. The cheesery is another great option for a relaxing afternoon by the vines. Did I mention the Pinot noir truffles?!? Great food, service and... More
