A vineyard that showcases its own wines accompanied with an amazing tasting plate that offsets the choices of wines available. The hosts explain each of the vintages available and provides an opportunity to try each wine. A beautiful setting in the midst of the well cared-for vines. The serving staff is very knowledgeable and attentive.

What a fantastic setting for a wedding reception. Great food, fantastic wines and super staff. This place has it all. Everything about the day went well. The canapés beforehand were excellent, delivered by such friendly staff. The setting is great. The dining area converts well into a dance area for the post reception celebrations. Well done, Poppies

Great wines which are showcased by a superb tasting plate in a fantastic vineyard setting. Pinot Noir is fantastic and for those that like a cheese plate after, the Late Picked Riesling is a must. the Winemakers are the brilliant hosts and staff do a rally good job.

Amazing food, beautiful wines, and a beautiful French-inspired setting. The food is served on a large platter, with lots of small tapas-style goodies.

My friends really raved about Poppies so I had high expectations. We got a last minute booking and headed there for lunch on our vineyard tour. Seated inside it's a bit dark but that's ok. We were a late booking and didn't expect the best seats. The set up was nice. It was super busy so everyone working was obviously... More

We were tasting wines in the area and were fascinated by the couple who ran this winery - named after the wife of the couple. Good location, excellent decor, and good wines.
