Thankyou to Gabrielle for adding some personal touches to conversation and wines notes. The Nepenthe set up is not flashy, its not stuffy or pretentious either. With simple but somewhat elegant tasting area they get the job done well. A modestly stocked fridge of local...More

Had a lovely time doing wine tasting with a group of friends. They have a nice room which you can sit in and the lady who served us was knowledgable and friendly. They have some nice white wines.

Nepenthe wines produce great staple quality wines. Apart from the view over the vines, this place has absolutely no soul. Just get them from Dan Murphys.

At the cellar they have some unique varietals both red and white that were great to try. Our favourite is the CabSauv (red) though we'll drink just about anything they offer ;-)
