We just walked right in and bought tickets. Have fun! If you can, get the wine tasting with the chocolate and the glass you get to keep. Its a fun way to remember your trip if you drink wine at home.

The whole estate and grounds is open and free to enter. You only pay to access the main house or for a wine tasting. The location is beautiful just aim for a weekday outside school holidays.
