Sadly we couldn’t eat lunch here as there was a private function on. We did however do the paid wine tasting which was very educational and reasonably priced. Loved the fact that the cost included a take home wine glass. Great souvenir.

A picturesque winery with lots of history. We had a pleasant and relaxed wine tasting. In addition we stayed on the estate in a self catering bungalow. A great experience. The bungalow is very well appointed and in a quiet location.

Really enjoyed wine tasting at Mission Estate Winery! Staff were really friendly and explained the wines well and made the experience enjoyable. For $6 you get to taste 6 wines and take a stemless wine glass home with you. Beautiful location and experience! Highly recommended!
