All the details and great service make the difference. The plates and the fire oven pizzas are delicious, excellent way to enjoy the stunning view of the bays

We came here for lunch and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We ordered the platter to share, and pizza, washed down with one of their very lovely bottles of wine.

After our long lazy lunch, we enjoyed being able to take a walk through their vineyards, and followed their path down to a point with great views over the bay.

We also utilised their pickup service which was great and enabled us both to have a drink!

It was only a 10 minute drive from our hotel in Russell to The Omata Estate Vineyard. We got a nice table outside and ordered The Omata Platter and 2 glasses of their reserve Syrah. The platter had cheese, salami, prosciutto, bread, grapes and olives and it was really good and a lot to eat but we did. After lunch we took a walk in the vineyard which overlooks the bay.

Very friendly staff who handled our visit well, acknowledged their shortcomings, and addressed the problem, unsolicited.
We arrived to apologies that they had run out of pizza bases, for the wood fired oven so we opted for the mixed platter for 2 - excellent, when it arrived.
Again, they had run out of the ecoutrement for the wine tasting option ( 2 white, 3 red plus port) and served the tasting in the same glass - aghast!
Service was slow, but who cares with such wonderful surroundings and in the end,unsolicited, they waived one of the tasting charges, which was a thoughtful gesture.
Well worth a visit.
Superb location with post lunch walks.
