My fiancé and I visited for lunch and then did a tasting and cave room tour. We really liked the wines especially their Pinots! The guide was a good bloke and knew his stuff.

Very nice and non-pretentious. So for a wine drinker who loves wine, but doesn't know a lot about them, the staff was very easy and informational. I enjoyed the wine caves, and the Cheesery as well! The food was great too!

Tried their famed wine and cheese tasting and it was an awesome experience. It took really long for the cheese platter to come but it was well worth the wait. Loved the interior and atmosphere of the place as well!
