Enjoyed a wonderful early evening wine tasting experience in this very cozy underground cellar. The staff are very knowledgeable about the many wines on offer. The small cheese scones served warm, alongside the wines is a nice touch. A one off experience in unique surroundings.

Not sure a teenager would enjoy sitting around while you sip on wine, unless they are 18 and can partake.
