Unique interesting place, with a sort of museum in house. Very friendly staff, very helpful and knowledgeable. Wines are great as are the Fortified Wines, Meads and Ports. Another must visit place, been before and will visit again for sure.

My first visit to a meadery did not disappoint. Apart from the delicious products - particularly enjoyed the spicy 'wine' with cinnamon and nutmeg - I found the meadery process quite fascinating. Another good place to visit in the Barossa.

First time visit, and pleasantly surprised. Bit worn down and old school, but phenomenal service and some delicious and very affordable wines. The late harvest Cabernet Sauvignon is a standout, served chilled! Oh, and the Blackcurrant liqueur! Yum! AND mead!

We came here for the port and the mead especially the blackcurrant and rum-raison ones. But the Falcon Shiraz isn't bad either. There are always cases on sale. Friendly staff and definitely worth a visit.

Amazing wine and meads. Staff are fantastic and so accomodating. Loved the wines and the variety. Value for money with tastings was great. Favourite winery in the Barossa for sure.
