Not only is the cellar door and restaurant a truly unique architectural wonder the staff are sincerely amazing and passionate about the region and their wine. A credit to the manager to have such energetic people that make the experience and the wine is pretty good too! The very best Pinot Noir in the region. Far superior to Ten Minutes... More

The food is always good here, pricey but good. The wine tasting is lovely and gives you a little taste of things to come and things to order. Always enjoyed my visits here.

This looked a very stylish cellar door and restaurant building. Once inside there were lovely views from large windows overlooking some of the vines that make up this estate. We were there for tasting their wines, for which there was a reasonable $5 charge. A limited number of wines was available for tasting but the list seemed to be representative.... More

Six of us went there 2 went for the wine tasting and the other 4 to sit in the garden. For the wine tasting you pay $5 but it is refunded if you buy a bottle of wine. The wine was really mediocre and very much overpriced. The two of us who went for the wine tasting wanted to claim... More

We stopped here for lunch on the weekend. The view from the casual Dining was magnificent. For that I would give 5 stars. Food was not bad though they brought out the wrong side dish but that didn't bother us. Our lunch was $121. I paid by efpos. After entering my PIN numbers and pressed enter twice, the total was...

We loved our visit here. We enjoyed a wine tasting before lunch so we could chose our wines with lunch. The wines were pretty good, not amazing, and rather expensive, but we certainly enjoyed the rose, and the men enjoyed the Pinot. It was not at all busy, and the other few tables were all Chinese. The food was absolutely... More

Daughter married here and excellent experience. Been back for meals twice since and quite OK but third time experience not so good. Arrived for lunch at 1230pm and eventually received main course (our first meal), two hours later!! Ordered meal before drinks to get things going but pre-lunch drinks plus two bottles of wine, slowly consumed, ran out before main... More

The wine tasting is great as is the resturant. Service can be a bit hit and miss - need to get more organised from the first to second seating. The views while you are wining and dining are really lovely - very relaxing. The food was excellent.

We had lunch here a couple of weeks ago for my partners birthday. Beautiful table for 2 overlooking the majestic vineyards and Westernport bay. It was one of those typical Melbourne days (four season in one day) which added to the experience. You are looking at the same view, but raining or misty one moment, then beautiful sunshine the next....never... More
