We visited eight wineries and all were very, very good. Consistency seems to be the case in this region. But if really pushed, we thought that Katnook's wines, together with the warm welcome and generous tasting, just about shaded it.

We went here recently for a tasting and just loved it!! The staff were so welcoming and friendly, and they had a toy basket for our young children to play with. Wines were exceptional and the tasting list very extensive! One of our favourite wineries.

Visited Katnook Estate Cellar Door on a lovely sunny day and the cheese platter was awesome. Sat outside in the picnic area with an excellent glass of Katnook wine. Very friendly staff so had a great tasting here.
