Beautiful place, not only a wine estate but much more.. you have to pay to enter the wine estate, but it’s a must visit when you’re close by .. we spended around 1,5hour to see the gardens, farm, bakery etc.

We did an afternoon wine tasting. We had to pay an entrance fee to get into the estate. We found this odd. We prefer the Jordan style where you pay for a tasting which is offset against any purchases. The wine tasting is more expensive...More
