Great food, excellent wine and a great view from the dining area especially on a sunny day. We went for lunch and a wine tasting. What I found interesting was that we could purchase the wine tasting for $15 pp and have this with the meal. I do not like that you have to pay to taste the wine but in this case we were having lunch so it was an interesting way to wine and dine. The food was nice, hubby Ok and our adult daughters meal was dreadful, but she did say that her was what was wrong not necessarily to food. We will be back to try the High Tea it looked fab.

We loved our visit to Batch. Our tasting room guide was WONDERFUL. She walked us through the different wines, some history and a tour of the grounds. Their views are gorgeous! The bubblely is a must try.

Avoid this place at all costs. The staff highlight how this place should not be in hospitality. Waiter spoke way to fast and could not even be bothered to tell us the daily specials ( the place was not that full), gave me the wrong meal ( then tried to make excuses) said my replacement meal would be under 10 min which was not the case. When i cancelled the meal he removed our glasses and stormed off. Food that we did get was overpriced for what we got.
