For the festival MP are offering a library tasting of O’Shea Shiraz. Stunning! Otherwise an excellent tasting experience where Nasha has been an excellent host to explain the history and winemaking of MP. The premium tasting of aged Semillons is excellent. Highly recommended.

This winery was recommended to as a must visit and did not disappoint. Gorgeous buildings and the gardens a credit to the gardeners. The cellar door is not as big as some but their wines and service certainly made up for up.
