Stopped in here with friends for a brief visit. There is a nice selection of wines to try. We walked away with a Chardonnay and semi sweet white as a gift. The wine tasting was good and the service really made the experience. We were helped by a lovely and friendly lady who made the visit that much more enjoyable.

We were staying at 'Just Heaven' and this winery was recommended by the owners. What a lovely stop. We did some wine tasting, had a look at the view and bought some very nice wines.

Had a lovely lunch here today with a large group. The service of our waitress was awesome & she was so nice. Tasted some wines with the owner which was very enjoyable & purchased a couple of bottles at a very good price. The mains were ok, but the desserts were much better. Very yummy & good priced.

Fantastic wine and amazing food in a lovely country setting, this small hidden gem a stones throw from camp tailwaggers is a perfect spot for a long lazy lunch sipping the perfect wine

Hi. Thank you so much for your kind words. We always do our best. The waitress was Eileen and she is very good. Must agree dessert is always the best. Stay well and see you again. Cheers Mark More

Visited Ilnam Estate Winery for a Sunday lunch and wine tasting and was really pleased that we did! The food was amazing with generous servings and reasonably priced. The outlook and setting from the winery is very pleasant and makes for a very enjoyable dining experience. We tasted all the wines from the cellar door and had a nice chat... More

We were staying just down the road and were told about the winery. What a fabulous place. We tried some wines, found one we really liked ( took a bottle with us ) then sat down to a delicious lunch. Both of us being vegetarian was good to see a few options. We had the vegetable patties and my goodness... More

Love to take my Mum and Dad here for a trip down memory lane. My Dad is 84 and he went to school in Carool. This place has a lovely past. Winery is modern but still has old world charm and gracious hospitality. Food excellent, wine good as well - love the semi sweet white called "Snowy"

My fiance and I have stopped here twice now and loved it both times. I must admit the first time was more out of curiosity than anything else however the wines turned out to be very good. Throw in the great view and tasty food and this little winery is a winner. Definitely worth checking out.

They even have some music here on some Sundays!! This place has a nice view down into the Tweed Valley & out to the ocean. Not real pleasant if the wind is up from the South!! Try the Petit Verdot...Unreal
