Overview
More
Swallows Welcome is the art studio of local watercolour artist Patricia Negus. Browse through her colourful garden or admire Patricia's Artwork. You are welcome to view Patricia's 102 watercolour paintings of more than 500 South-West Wildflowers on permanent exhibition in the mudbrick Chapel of the Flowers. Patricia also stocks and sells all of the publications of Cape to Cape Publishing. Sadly, winemaker Tim passe away in early 2017 so we no longer make wine. We have now sold all of our wine stock. Patricia now uses the winery space to display more of her work.

Wonderful visit to Swallows Welcome and meeting Patricia, who generously showed us through her chapel, beautiful gardens, woodworking area and art studio. The blue wrens, frogs, her puppies and magical garden colour added to the enjoyment. Must see!

We purchased some great wine, cheap. Great talk with two characters, the chapel is Devine. You will be surprised, old English garden, wine made the old way. Not too many machines here. Wine on the left was a nice drop.
