We have had a wonderful lunch & Wine tasting with Lorraine the wine maker, she was wonderful very enthusiastic about all the wines they are producing, we then had platters & pizza followed by dessert.
A beautiful setting great way to spend a afternoon with friend & the wines are superb.

If all you want is a platter and a glass (or bottle) of wine then this is the place to go. Great for a Sunday afternoon rain or shine. We went on a cold winter's day and sat inside but can imagine returning in the summer and sitting outside among the vines sipping on a delicious rose and enjoying the local cheese and meats that the platter offers. Very reasonable too.

My girl friend and I had a very relaxing day while enjoying our wine and yummy platter with the sunshine in beautiful Autumn. I would not hesitate to go back again.

Sonya Wilcock ran out tasting so we got the full rundown on the vineyard and its wines and were thoroughly entertained while we tasted their wines. One thing that stood out was the low alcohol content of all the wines, with the Cab Merlot coming out on top with 13%. Very European style wines. Their wine maker, Lauren Swift, is only 28 years old and already holds the the 2015 Young Wine Maker of the Year award - what talent. Well worth a visit.

Visited as part of a Prinsy's wine tour. Ash Ridge was the most interested in talking to us as a group and sharing information about the wines we were tasting
