A tasteful sampling room (pun intended) and a good introduction to the family history, plus why the family decided to establish a winery. Learn why we don't get many wines from this region in Australia, then taste them.

We went here for wine tasting - were thrilled to hear it was free even with no purchase and had a very knowledgeable Argentinian explaining the wines to us. Tasted about 8 of them and then bought some to take home!
