Villa Maria is a vineyard promoted in most U.K. Supermarkets so it was nice to call in here to see where it all comes from. The cellar door is a beautiful setting with super water features and relaxing chairs for you pre or post tasting ( or for non drinkers ) . Inside the woman leading the tasting was incredibly...

We went late afternoon at 4pm and we're greeted with a very warm welcome and treated to tasting 7 wines. Michelle was fantastic, giving us the history of the family owned business and was so knowledgable on all the wines and their outlets/supermarkets in the UK and other countries. So glad we chose to visit this one out of the... More

Your enthusiasm is infectious and back in the UK my Dad loves his new wine bag. His enthusiasm for a bottle of Villa Maria Sav is as strong as ever. Not bad going for an 86 year old and he wears the VM cap I bought him all the time. We now use your yardstick in assessing Savs; "Does it... More

Wandered in and luckily seen for a wine taking (was not far from closing time). Looked after by a young guy who was very friendly and knowledgeable about the wines. Was all very interesting! Couldn't resist buying a bottle!

We didn't do the wine tasting here as our itinerary didn't include it so we made the trip specially as it's my favourite wine. The front of house man was brilliant. So helpful and informative. He even made a little video to send home to my friend as she didn't make the trip. Definately recommend!

Visiting Villa Maria was a great experience. We very much enjoyed the wine tasting and learned a lot about the history of the winery and the region. A great bonus was that we were able to buy a couple of bottles of R&D wine only available at the cellar door.

Villa Maria was a great place for wine tasting - and it was free. The staff were very knowledgeable and keen to share their knowledge too. Cellar door sales were available as well as gifts of locally made wooden platters (made from the barrels), hats and books too. we bought six wines as a 'thank you' for some friends that... More

This winery was stop 1 of 5 on our tour, and was a great start. Felicity was our host and was so full of knowledge. The story behind this beautiful vineyard has to be heard. Full of award winning wines and beautiful gifts. Couldn't recommend anymore!
