Hannah was excellent in introducing the range of Gartelmann wines and making recommendations. Lovely cellar door venue with log fire to keep us warm. See separate uncomplimentary review of The Deck restaurant - stick with the wine.

The two guys serving were great characters as was the wine. The room and the gardens and pond outside were idylic.
