An amazing place ,where you just keep going from room to room. I guess its a gift shop but they carry so many different type of items and the very nice winery which first caught our eye and made us stop.

This place is huge. Whatever you are looking for, they probably have it. Kitchen supplies to Souvenirs to golf clothes, they have it all. Including a small cafe. Hang gliding behind the store, and a vinyard tour to boot.
