This is a great little winery to call into when in Kingscote. The tasting cost $4 but as stated in previous reviews it's wavered if you buy a bottle of wine at the end. The staff are extremely friendly, knowledgable and helpful with a great...More

Thank you for your kind comments. We have only just commenced our food offerings which are made up of platters and these will be expanded shortly. We hopefully will be expanding our cellar door and this will include a bigger kitchen which in turn will...More

Worth a visit for the scenery alone. Unfortunately a brusque staff member made this possibly the least pleasant cellar door experience I’ve had, out of dozens around the country. The prices aren’t reaching above the quality of the product as some try to do.

Good selection of wines to taste for the $5 fee. Nothing really standout though. Good view from the tasting room. Friendly staff. Definitely worth a visit.

Was a little disappointed, expected a better range of food. Their wine was beautiful but their eating area a bit under welding. The views were spectacular so worth the drive

A great view from winery across the Bay. Very friendly staff who provided free tastings and background on the wines. Mellows wines for an easy drink but lacked a little body for the serious red drinkers. Offer a tawny.

Don't skip this place. Magnificent wines that have become favourites after sampling throughout South Australia. Attentive,warm welcome in the middle of winter and no pressure to buy - although we could not resist. Great location and wonderful wines.

I went here after the Kingscote farmers market and its a lovely place to sample wines or to buy and take away. It's in a lovely peaceful location too.
