After enjoying Talijancich down the road, thought we'd try Carilley Estate wines as hadn't heard of them or had recommendations to visit. 1st thing to come up was $5 pp tasting fee which suggested the wines would be great. Unfortunately it was downhill from there - with poor quality wines being sent to the spittoon and 'that is not for tasting' a typical response. Having paid $5pp to taste Leeuwin Estate wines at Margaret River, which are World Class, Carilley is considered a 'rip-off' and will be avoided. Carilley may have earned $15, but the 3 tasters will ensure the bad memory is not repeated by friends and family.
