Each time we're in the area, we lunch here; it's terrific for food, service and of course, the wines. The food really is excellent - we had the duck salad and the tuna salad this time, and the desserts are amazing.

Enjoyed a lovely sunny day and wine tasting prior to the meal and the Tasting platter for two which was perfect and a little different from the norm. Service was really great!

I went here on a Wine Tasting Tour yesterday and the food was to die for! Very unique flavours with fresh fruit and the chicken melted in my mouth. They gave their own unique twist on simple food and they delivered. The sizing was very reasonable and presentation was awesome! I've given a 4/5 rating due to the long wait.... More

The approach to the winery through manicured lawns is magnificent. The setting is worth a detour. The wine tasting was informative but restricted to a small selection. We were seated outside in the shade. The waitresses were attentive and the service was excellent. The entrées were exceptional. The scallops were large and juicy, the chili and ginger pork balls were... More

Always a very pleasant spot for lunch, lovely grounds and a beautiful setting. Unfortunately the service was sporadic - some of the wait staff proactive and on the ball, others below par for this venue. In spite of this, our meals and wine were very good. All in all, recomended

Very relaxing atmosphere to enjoy good food and wine.Service could have been better. We ate outside but there was no room inside at the time we went which we would have preferred.
