“Customer Service needs work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Beautiful cellar door but sadly the customer service lacked customer service. Pushy, bordering on rude in telling me that I should like a wine when I know my tastes.

“world class wines, great atmosphere...the way wineries should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

we visit this winery whenever we are up in the Barossa. This winery consistantly amazes me with the high quality of the wines in the entire range. The wines are produced in a very traditional method which is very time intensive for the winery but it produces amazing and distinctive wines. The atmosphere is also fantastic with a great tasting area. Outside you can see the old wooden basket press that they still use to press the grapes for their "basket press shiraz" - fabulous!!

“The best winery we went to in the barossa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This is a smaller winery so wasn't on our list of big names to hit, but we soon discovered that a smaller winery usually means more care and more unique flavours.

The staff really knew what they were talking about.

We also went next door and got some delicious mustards and relishes!
