Great winery recommended by other wineries in the area for its wonderful Chardonnay and also a good Pinot Noir. Very picturesque and the staff were great. Ended up buying most of our wine here.

Lovely tasting with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Complementary cheese adds to the experience. Nice wine and outlook. If you’re after a tasting that is more than a production line, Scarborough really looks after you.

Gillard is the original, very picturesque and far more intimate. Hermitage is newer and built far more for the tourist trade. Same style of tasting experience but go for Gillards......enjoy
