“Poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

Infriendly unhelpful staff, not sure I would go back there again, perhaps just to buy some bubbly which is very good.

“Simonsig”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

We went here on the recommendation of our daughter, who said it was her favourite and we can understand why. It was excellent value and we weren't rushed to try our wines. Excellent

“Nice winery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Simonsig has good sparkling wine. The Chenin Blanc is also a nice wine and a really bargain.
There are not many wines where you can get such a good price/quality relation like the Chenin Blanc that they have.
Big tasting room, friendly staff, also a nice outdoor area where you can also taste the wine if the weather permits.
