My husband and I visited McWilliams today and what a wonderful time we had. We booked in for a guided tour of the winery and were lucky enough to have a young lady called Mel as our guide. She was energetic, knowledgeable and nothing was any trouble for her. She answered all our queries and was so happy and bright.... More

The two young men were every helpful and knowledgeable however it really lacked atmosphere. Many wineries I have visited will have crackers or cheeses to accompany your tastings nothing here. They did have a nice selection of local produce for sale. While it is only a little thing it was disappointing to get my $100 worth of wines/produce handed to... More

After the welcome we had from De Bortoli what a flat feeling here - no energy or care from the staff - needless to say we left empty handed after trying to purchase wine with our special wine pass offer we had purchased to be declined on our choice of purchase - no where in the fine print did it...

Doing a tour of some vineyards while in Australia and McWilliams had to be on the list. Back home we can get this wine, but it's great to see the vineyard and to taste the wine where it is made. A great day out, good company and a great selection of wine. Getting stocked up for the festive season.

Visited during the VIP Discovery Function Weekend and had a great visit. Informative and enjoyable thanks to Claire who explained the wine business and all of the McWilliams organisation exploits. So nice to get a personal touch as she is a sixth generation McWilliams. Oh yes the wines are great and of high quality with variety to suit most tastes.... More
