I have been to the winery a few times and I have enjoyed each visit. With 80 wines (and a few whiskeys) to taste you are spoilt for choice and I would note it has some local Vineyards wines to taste which don't have cellar doors. It has a nice layout and it is well suited to pop in relax... More

I have never been to a place like this before but it was brilliant. Just give them your drivers license at the counter get a swipe card and start tasting wines. Swipe the card select a taster/ half glass/ or full glass and then sit down in the comfortable seats and relax. Then try some more. Such a great atmosphere,... More

A cozy, fun and brilliant way to spend an evening. We shared a gourmet platter and then chose our wines but the taste, half or full glass. Easy to keep tabs on what you are spending. Plater was yummy but would have like to know where the cheese was from. Little explanation cards would be great. Staff VERY knowledgeable. A... More

Nice selection of wines to sample and even more available for purchase by the bottle. The card system is easy to use and the prices are competitive with restaurants. We also had the cheese and meat platter that was nicely done. Very good way to sample a lot of wines without breaking the bank.

Only your budget may prevent you from tasting all of the about 80 excellent wines that you make flow there in self-service by using an in-house card (backed up by your credit card). You better order a cheese platter in addition, first because wine loves to be accompanied by good cheese, and second to better digest the big variety of... More

This place is great for trying a variety of wines. You buy a card that has a certain amount of money on it and then you pop it into a sort of credit card slot everytime you want to try a wine. You can have taster size, small glass or full glass. I just had tasters that are cheaper so... More

Visited on a wet afternoon. Not sure what was involved until system was explained by staff. We shared a cheese platter for one which was just right for a snack. We were each given a card which acts as your "tab". You can try a very small amount or half a glass of the numerous wines on offer allowing to... More

A great idea and, in my experience, a unique one. You get an in-house card, then use it to try any number of excellent wines. Each is available from a dispenser as a tasting sample, a half-glass or full glass and your card is charged accordingly. You can choose from eight chardonnays, eight sauvignon blancs and so on. Each variety... More
