This is a small vineyard with a well deserved reputation for great wine and excellent food. It’s smaller wine capacity means that it only sells from the vineyard itself - you won’t find the wine in shops locally or abroad. The 2009 and 2011 Shiraz...More

We came across this place by accident. This was the first stop of the wine tram. Very nice wine, but more then that. The kids had chips and cheese and every thing was amazing
