Enjoyed the wine tasting experience. The young lady who was our host was very very informative and helpful. Unfortunately our favorite Pinot Gris vintage has sold out!... but that shows how good it was.

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.
