The wine tasting was enjoyable and the setting is lovely. The underground cellar is impressive - one of only 4 in the world. Separate glasses for water and some crackers would have improved the experience. We did not stay for a meal but the restaurant...More

Stopped here for Saturday lunch. Excellent choice. The choice of food whilst not large is more than adequate. The platter we chose was well presented and more than adequate for 2 persons. Good value for money and service with a smile.

This is an old established estate with large facilities Which could use attention. However the tasting room was fine and some of the wines delicious. It was quite busy so service was slow. Wouldn't be one of our top recommendations
