We were warmly welcomed by Steven at the cellar door. He was very knowledgable about all the wines offed for tasting. It was particularly nice to meet a local young person with a passion for wine and good customer service.

Spent some time here sampling some of their great wines. Pinots and Sauv Blancs; extremely good. Lovely Cellar Door experience, knowledgeable guy behind the bar and all in all a good p-lace to visit. Well worth the trip out there.

Good little set up on the winery. Freesh and relaxed environment for a quiet afternoon. The service was great and our host was the best out of all the 5 winery's we went to.
