Fabulous location, great ocean views. We enjoyed the tasting - informative- wide variety of whites, a rose and reds. Went home with a rose and shiraz. Would be good if there was some food available like other wineries eg tapas, pizza, finger food.

We had been drinking the Bay of Shoals Oaked Chardonnay at the Reflections restaurant in American river. We loved it so decide to grab some bottles to take home. The Cab Sav is pretty good too!

The vineyard and tasting room are located in a very picturesque area, just outside Kingscote. The tastings were well presented, but we were just not thrilled by the wines. Nevertheless, we did purchase a bottle of Sauv Blanc, which was closest to our taste.

We're sorry to say that this was not for us. The location is lovely, but the wines were not to our liking at all. Our tasting was very impersonal and we felt rushed. We definitely prefer The Islander, both when it comes to wines and...More
