“Relaxing place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Though the lunch menu was nothing fantastic, the antipasto and dips platters were very good. We didnt intend to stay for long but the view was just too mesmerizing and we ended up chatting away for couple of hours. Nice place to hang out for a gathering/catchup with friends and family.

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely lunch at the winery. The menu was slightly disappointing but we ended up going with a picnic basket which proved to be fantastic, it even came with a blanket. Lovely relaxing surrounds.

I went here on a Sunday afternoon and it was so relaxing sitting outside in the sun. The view is amazing and the wine is great. A great afternoon out :)

“Excellent views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

It was beautiful here. Enjoyed a wonderful lunch and excellent fruity fresh whit wine. The views are picturesque, with relaxing indoor seating and jazz music playing, or sit outside in the hint of England garden. I also saw some couples having a picnic lunch over looking the range and valley while sipping their wine. I would come back again and we took some wine home. Only wish they had a menued wine tasting with several of their wines and small glasses to taste a variety instead of asking one at a time at the bar.

“Probably not for the European palate”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The locals seem to like the wines here but then, its all a matter of taste. Actually the wines come from the Stanthorpe region (where there are one or two good producers) and this is more a "front of house" attraction close to Toowoomba where there is a larger population for an outlet. For our palates the whites are too acidic and the reds too harsh. Even the floriferous varieties admired by Oz Clarke didn't touch the spot and I doubt that the Wine Society would be interested in these products.
Bare in mind this is a critique by someone who is used to European wines, but enjoys those of the New World, particularly NZ and SA wines. Australian palates do differ from ours it has to be accepted (remember those horrid Chardonnay-Semillons that were all the rage there 20 odd years ago - a bit like the Spanish sauternes of the 1960's).
Lets be honest about the reds. Oz as the potential for world class wines if only the government had the sense to realise it and not tax bonded wines annually. Most need 1--15 years to mature and lose their astringent tannin after taste, something you don't seem to get with the blended non single estate wines currently on offer. No offense intended to you Aussies, but you need to get your government to come to its senses. Perhaps that's why some of your most successful wine exports have been your vintners.
