We checked out the marron tanks first with an interesting and personal explanation. Tasted the wines (loved the whites particularly) before having lunch. Bought a bottle to go with the lunch. Food was tasty and fresh. Everyone was friendly. Service quick. A real country experience.

The good was lovely...the tour of the farm was great...the local wine was nice too. The setup of the restaurant is missing an opportunity though as it has more of a road side diner feel, rather than a nice dining venue. A good experience...
