We dropped in at Knappstein Winery on a whim and are glad we did. We met Tony who was most helpful. We tasted some special wines especially the Riesling. Shipping our order home to Perth was free. Well worth a visit.

Just loved the well laid out and spacious cellar door and informative service from the gentleman who attended to me. The Riesling was superb and I also loved the Shiraz/Malbec blend. Don’t miss this cellar door.
