This winery provides light lunches consisting of soups and crusty bread and a fantastic platter of cold cuts, cheeses, olives etc all from the local area. When combined with one of their wines it provides an enjoyable lunch.

Took advantage of the Grab One deals for a lunch platter and wine. Never disappointed by the quality of the food, wine, views and company.

If you're younger don't expect to be taken seriously at this place. We booked and got there early (before anyone else in fact) and were told the place was going to fill up fast so there will be no room to seat us and do...More

Food fresh and tasty. Found wine selection slim. One platter was for four costs $80, I personally think that was a lot of money for what we got - will leave it up to you to decide.More

Idyllic location, excellent food and good wine. What more could you want? The scenery is outstanding and the tasting food platter was very enjoyable. Had the wine flight which was a sample of five wines and you can select the wines. Well worth a visit.
