Started by a local family who have made an interesting selection of great wines . Gorgeous location with pretty rural outlook . Great platters for lunch alongside a wine of your choice or a tasting of several wines. Great service .

A great venue with knowledgeable staff. The platter was lovely with plenty of bread and a second pot of olive oil happily provided. The tapenade and other dips were great too. We had the tasting wines, the syrah is divine!
