We stayed in the one bedroom apartment over the cellar door for 3 nights. We spent our time doing a hop on hop off wine tour and had lunch at Highfield one day as well as visiting other wineries in the area. Very relaxing time. Stephanie also organised us dinner one night that we could heat up later as the restaurant was not open for dinner. Food was delicious - we had share plates for dinner and then shared the gnocchi again for lunch as an entre and then the sirloin steak for main and then the creme brûlée and the pistachio and fig parfait for desert. All very yummy. Wine tasting was also delicious and we have ordered a mixed case to be delivered to Australia. Pete was a wonderful host of the cellar door and apartment and Stephanie could not have been better running the restaurant. All the staff were also more than helpful and lovely to chat to, We would highly recommend a visit to Highfield for wine tasting, lunch and to stay.

Nice location in the country. I found the food very poor quality and taste. I had the chicken dish and seafood chowder. Was very unimpressed for. $55 per person. Talk to others who felt the same.
However the staff were very lovely and polite. I am a fussy eater. But if they bought the food quality up and made portion sizes a little bigger . They would get a higher rating.

Very dramatic building set above the vineyard. We were recommend to call here after we were unable to have lunch at the Brancott cellar restaurant because we failed to book in advance. We just managed to get a table and were delighted with the service and food, which accompanied the dramatic Italian style setting.

Just had an amazing lunch at Highfield TerraVin cellar door. The service was awesome with an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable host who took us through wine tasting their selection of wines. The food was outstanding and the detail in presentation above expectation. Definitely worth the trip to find them.
