Reviewed 17 February 2012

The staff were cold and rude. It took ages just to get a coffee that was very average. The wines were completely overpriced and the tastings were not worth the money we had to pay to taste.
Visit the cheesery instead, the staff are much more friendly and give good service. The cheese is great too.

The wine. The cheese. The location. It is expensive but well worth it.

“A great visit”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

We had done the wine tour previously but were anxious to repeat our visit to the cheesery and restaurant. The restaurant was as good as we remembered and is recommended and the cheeses are first class.
