“High Rep. Wines available for tasting in pleasant surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

The wines of this estate have a very high reputation and this was a chance to sample them in an environment conducive to getting the best appreciation of their quality. Most tasting is free but 3 wines (including the Brut and the Cabernet Sauvignon) cost AUD 2.50 refundable if you order wines or eat in the restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful and encouraged us to try the full range available, but I did feel under a little pressure to buy. You can make your own valuation of the wines themselves, but the tasting experience is highly recommended, and there is an option for a "matched food and flight of wine" experience (either red or white) for a reasonable sum, to experience which wines go best with which foods.
And then there are the grounds, and the Art Gallery featuring many modern Australian artists... What's not too like?

“Unmissable! The best long lunch in Margaret River!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

We visit Margaret River every year and this is by far the best long lunch you can imagine. The food is delightful and the wine list, especially the museum wine list is superb. We love the oysters and the flight for entree. All the mains we've tried have been delicious, especially the marron. The outdoor setting is spectacular with the old forrest in the background. Book in advance. The service is excellent. Unmissable. Not a lunch you want to drive to if you enjoy food and wine...

“Great service and oysters!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We arrived for a late lunch and managed to get a table, however just after our order had been sent to the kitchen the power went out in the whole area. The outage was expected to last several hours so we adjusted our order to uncooked food such as oysters and cheeses since we were really hungry! The service staff were excellent and tried really hard to get us a good range of food. Luckily after about half an hour after most people had left, the power came back on allowing us to finish with jummy desserts and air conditioning!

“Carole King concert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

The venue was lovely, all was well organized, the concert was well-staged and very good. We pre-ordered hampers, which were very good, but were disappointed that they contained cheese from South Australia and macarons from Victoria! When the South-West has such a variety of wonderful local produce, it would have been good to have the hampers filled with local goods rather than food from interstate.
After the main event we wanted coffee, so went to the tent selling tea & coffee. We were horrified to discover that only instant coffee from catering sized tins was available. After walking right around the venue we found a coffee van selling Yahava coffee and queued for half an hour to get a decent cup of coffee. At a high class venue and expensive event I'd expect better than instant coffee to be easily available.
