Tasted some nice wines but smaller pours than most. What really differed from the other cellar doors we visited was a lack of generosity - a request to try an additional wine (not premium) was refused saying it was winter tastings (despite also saying that...More

Visited Allan Scott as part of a wine tour. The pours were very small and when we asked to try something that wasn’t specifically offered we were told no. No extra service at all. Would have possibly brought more but didn’t.

Thanks for your question. We love dogs, and in fact have our own winery dog, Digby. However as we are a food premise, we are unable to have animals inside the restaurant or cellar door I'm sorry.
