Great location, good wine to taste, I would recommend the wooded chardonnay. Restaurant if you want to test it out. Very pleasant service.

Extremely pleasant staff offsett by extremely displeasant display by owner with no regard for the dignity of his workers in front of customers. While he himself, the high and mighty don't greed. Pathetic!

Just as Holden Manz, this estate was included in the wine tour, but these two estates are worlds apart. The wines at Holden Manz were very acidy, where the wines at Dieu Donee were much better bodied and fuller in taste, with less acid. Here we could also determine our own speed of tasting, where at Holden Manz we were pushed the next wine in our hands.

The views are stunning, although when we arrived it was gray and one could see less, it started to clear up and you get an amazing view over the valley around it.

As part of the wonderful Wine Tram tour, we stopped at Dieu Donné and decided to stay for for lunch in the Roca restaurant. The setting was nothing short of sublime and we enjoyed 'poll' position on the terrace with views that may possibly be unrivalled anywhere. We were served enthusiastically enough by our waiter, who was both knowledgeable and entertaining, and the food, beer and wine were all very good. However, the whole occasion was soured when we came to pay as, with some paltry excuse, they could not find a machine that would accept cards! As there were 6 of us, we had run up quite a significant bill and, not expecting such a problem, we had to 'scrape' together enough cash to pay - mainly because the waiter wanted his tip in cash rather than as part of the credit card payment! Not very dignified and a sour taste was left after what should have been a memorable experience.

We went to Dieu Donne for wine tasting and enjoyed the slightly more relaxed method of being able to choose the wines we wanted to taste, rather than having a set list, and that we could go to the counter when we were ready to try the next one.

The wines were good and with such an amazing view over the valley, I would definitely recommend it.
