Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

View and set up was inviting and relaxing. Love how it is dog friendly, however the resident dogs were a little disruptive at times when charging around guests and tables. Was worried someone may have been knocked over.
Hospitality and service needs improvement.
Cannot rate the wine as we only tasted a few and they were not anything I would rush out and purchase.

Great winery and friendly knowledgeable team. Loved the Petit Verdot and Fume Blanc but lots of great wines. Loved the view and setting.

Great place to chill out on the terrace overlooking the pond and fountain. We had a moscato and bought some of their peanuts which were delicious and a 300g bag was only $10. It is a lovely setting with gardens and some other nice outdoor areas on the other side.

The inside can be all closed off and airconditioned in Summer as it is only November and yet very warm as it is a tin roof so that is a great ability to have. They have good facilities on site. They have cheese platters for $30. Wine tastings were $10 but as we knew we wanted a moscato to drink there, they let us taste that one plus a late picked verdhelo without charging us the fee which was nice.

The name of Hanging Tree Wines comes from the big tree at the gate entrance where they used to hang their meat (not people) We had a bit of entertainment as people came who had two dogs and one of them got into the pond and was trying to shake itself near one of the staff. It was so funny and then that dog went through the inside and back out again leaving wet paw marks. The other dog had a see through cone around it's neck as must have had an operation and that was hilarious... cant help but laugh but probably frustrating for the dog.

The staff were very friendly and it's such a relaxed atmosphere. I'd be happy to come back here again.

Should have know better, as when we arrived the day before at 4.30pm we were met with icy stares and told they close at 5pm so no time to taste wine. Undeterred by the dour faces and lured in by the 5 star reviews, we booked for the following day at 3. 30pm. Same icy stares and dour faces. Cheese platter too small so had to order another. Minuscule amounts of wine, even by wine tasting standards. No explanation of any of the wines. Could not wait to get out. And as for the dogs being an attraction, one sat drooling staring at us eating, and the other kept jumping on our laps. Dreadful from start to finish, please don't waste your time when so many other warm and welcoming wineries exist.

I stayed at the Homestead for 2 nights last weekend and booked a 4pm wine tasting for our first afternoon. We were a group of senior friends one of whom was quite frail and unable to attend the complimentary wine tasting that those of us who did, found to be disappointing. It was a very cold, wet day but we were seated outside despite our age and two small coughing children and 4 dogs kept hovering around us (one even climbing on the tables), the former after the dogs and the latter after the small cheese platter I had purchased. The amount of each wine poured was miniscule and, when one our group politely asked if she could have our missing friend's share of one of the wines, the reply was an abrupt NO! Our server was very knowledgeable but not friendly.

The scrupulously clean Homestead however is really lovely and would be perfect for events when the weather is good. Sadly it was not for us with torrential rain keeping us indoors for the remainder of our stay. The view that we saw though when the sun shone briefly on our last morning is absolutely stunning and there are lots of seating areas on the surrounding verandah from which it can be enjoyed. There was a plentiful supply of wood and we made good use of it in the stone fireplace that kept us snug and warm in the enormous living area.

There are some things in the Homestead that need improvement though to get that extra star. They are:
Provide a floor plan so it is clear that 2 of the bathrooms are NOT ensuite. Also, we should have been advised that three of the bathrooms are unsuitable for the elderly (no railing in 2 and shower over a very high bathtub in 1).
Ensure that tea towels are provided (there were none).
Provide enough dishwasher tablets for each day your guests stay (there was only 1 when we needed 3). The liquid provided is only a rinse aid.
Update appliance instruction booklets (existing booklets are for non existent appliances and there are none for the current appliances)
Check electronic equipment. Most remotes seem to be redundant.
Kitchen drawers need reorganising and dinnerware needs updating.

The setting is beautiful, inside the winery, and the range of wines is wide, and good quality. Cazz was a terrific hostess, with lots and banter and good advice, and we purchased 2 dozen wines, we were fortunate to get a clearance on the 2015 Cab Sauv, which is very very drinkable.

Glad that we decided to drop in on one last vineyard despite the rain. Felt very welcomed at Hanging Tree, despite a slow day and nearing closing time. Pity that we could not take in the surrounds due to the rain. We left with a Muscat liqueur, just in time to reach our place of accommodation, before the storm arrived. What good timing!

We received a very warm welcome. We were invited in by Lauren and given a very friendly and hospitable wine tasting experience. Lauren had extensive knowledge of the wines and it genuinely felt like we were sitting with an old friend. The wines we requested to taste were exceptional. All in all a wonderful place to visit. We will definitely be back again. Thank you Lauren from Mark and Mariane.
