Went to a Concert at the Church road estate. Have been to the winery several times in the past. Good facilities for a concert in the sun. The winery really turned it on for the concert. Lots of toilets, food vendors and reasonable bar. Sounds quality and stage set up were excellent. The cellar door is good with a good... More

The knowledgeable, friendly staff made my visit here with overseas visitors a breeze. As I don't drink wine we were totally reliant on the help that they were given in choosing their wine to take home. No pressure either.

Visited the Winery as part of a larger tour and took the guided tour and visited the Museum. Alice, our guide, was fab - really friendly, knew her stuff and we're only sorry we didn't have more time to spend there. Absolutely worth and hour or two - the wine is damn fine and you can have lunch inside or... More

Great wines with an extremely knowledgeable server. They been producing wines since 1851 and very good they are too. They don't export to the UK so you have to go there!

On the behind the scenes tour (reserve in advance), our guide Alice was so technically knowledgeable. The tour involved a tour of the winemaking facility, tasting from the tanks, and a food/wine pairing education. Throughout Alice impressed us with her knowledge. We have been on 50+ wine tours all over the world, and Alice's tour a favorite.

We went for a special occasion lunch to their restaurant. To their credit they have a dedicated gluten free menu, the food of which is prepared in a separate part of the kitchen. Well done. Booking was well managed and the building provided for a great atmosphere. The service and food was excellent although the deserts did take an age... More

I've been on many wine tours all over the world, this was the best. Interesting, informative and enjoyable. We did the behind the scenes tour and our guide Alice was lovely and so knowledgeable. We were encouraged to try many wines (tip, get a taxi, then enjoy the wine). Quality wines were enjoyed, 90 min tour including lessons on wine... More

Went on tour of winery followed by tasting. Tour was led by Alice who was wonderful, the right mix of informative with a little humour mixed in. Winery has a long history and a museum on site to reflect this. Lovely wines and beautiful setting on a sunny day. We didn't eat but food looked very good.
