This winery has a beautiful deck with outstanding views. It also serves a lovely sparkling Shiraz, even more enjoyable when consumed on the deck!

This winery has an excellent setup on a hill overlooking the island not far from Penneshaw. Situated nicely so you can arrive at sunset on return to Penneshaw. Unfortunately the winery closed at 5 before the sun actually set! Tasting experience wasn't great but we did get to taste the KI broadbean snacks!

We visited this winery on good Friday- we tasted a few wines and the staff was very friendly. We sat on the veranda that has a gorgeous view over the ocean. Perfect spot for a seafood platter and a glass of wine

We must have been on KI on the rainiest day in February - so what better to do as an indoor activity than taste wine! I had read about the tasting platter and wine tasting at this place on TA. It lived up to expectations. A lovely (albeit wet) experience. Nice wines. There other ways of tasting though without indulging... More

Wow, a view to die for😀; nice wines and a friendly staff member who helped us with our wine tasting. The sparkling Shiraz was a nice afternoon wine to enjoy on the deck. Platter of prawns; what more could you want? All the best for the coming vintage. Cheers!

Dropped in to do a bit of wine tasting and ended up buying three bottles. Service was professional and friendly. The wine is excellent and if I had not already had lunch, I would have eaten here as what was on offer looked fantastic.
