We spent an amazing few hours wandering around the beautiful gardens, eating lovely (mainly self produced) food and tasting very good wine. A very relaxed and intimate experience and really good value. Thoroughly recommend it.

Wine tasting experience includes a botanical tour around the fascinating garden and a lunch consisting of local delicacies. The wine itself was marvelous, especially the dry Moscato. Definately worth a visit if looking for wine tasting in a local vineyard.
