This place has a great front end shop with the local produce including wine. We had burgers which were cooked and served quickly and very well presented. The service was second to none and is a great place to take a break from the road....More

What a delight to taste so many local wines in one location. It was like a ‘wine flight’ – tasting a particular style of wine from each vineyard. The service was friendly and very knowledgeable. We were then able to choose a glass of wine...More
