Unfortunate the service was so unaccommodating. Not friendly and uninformative. Not worth a trip apart from the gorgeous view.

This winery was recommended by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Loved the quaint feeling, as it was a change from the pristine cellar doors. They gave our boys some organic lemonade too. Beautiful setting. Great place to take some sepia photos!

Special $15 tasting pax 4 reds with a souvenir glass made in Germany. Entertaining tour by Justin McNamee who’s the winemaker. We tried a lot more wine than we’ve bargained for. Traditional wine making at its best. Thanks Justin for making it so memorable!
