We did a tasting here and was just lovely!!! The winery itself is beautiful and if you are into photography it is worth the stop. The wine we love and the host was very informative. Beautiful winery :)

Thanks for your review. We really are spoilt with the winery and vineyard vista - it is a very picturesque part of the world. We always welcome budding photographer and the ‘snap-happy’ social photographers!

I’m so glad that you enjoyed the wines and service as much as the views.

Thanks again for taking the time to review.

“Up market, trendy and expensive - wont go again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

We were doing some cellar doors and decided to go to this one knowing they had some great sav blanc. They have a lovely setup with nice views but, unfortunately, we did not enjoy the experience. It was very up market, trendy and expensive. You could not try individuals samples - you had to purchase a flight for $15 which would then be refunded upon the purchase of a bottle. The flight came with a very small cheese plate and some tiny tastings. This really detracted from the experience. The staff were not friendly. Sorry Shaw and Smith - I won't be visiting you again. prefer to go to the small friendly cellar doors who don't charge you to sample their wines!

Thanks for your review. Our Wine Flight tastings offers a unique opportunity to taste our 4 wines accompanied by a cheese sampler plate. We understand this may not always suit, but we aim to offer a wine experience rather than the standard cellar door tasting.

Again, thank you for your feedback and we are sorry that your visit didn't meet with your expectations.
