“Lovely setting, great food and wine”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This is one of my favourite wine farms in a very beautiful setting. The Wine Tasting Centre is tastefully decorated with place to sit and longer a little longer. Staff are very competent, knowledgeable and willing to help. Do yourself a favour and do the wine tasting which is paired with hand-made Chocolates by Tomes. A lovely treat. You can also pair your wine tasting with a delicious cheese platter. Both experiences a real treat. Do not leave without tasting the honey liqueur, a treat for the sweet tooth and lovely way to end off a meal. The restaurant on the premises is excellent and the food and service are both very good. Other things to do on the farm include visiting the Coffee Roasting Company.

“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The setting is superb, sitting out sampling the wines and soaking up the atmosphere. After the wine tasting popping to the coffee shop where they roast and grind the own beans and sampling the coffee was enjoyable as well as sobering!!!
