Visited a few months back, aside from the outstanding wine (their Grenache was the underrated winner for us..!), was an amazing tasting and then went out of their way to provide us with other amazing places to eat and visit. 10/10 would recommend!

Fantastic reds that you’ll never want to run out of, especially the Shiraz and GSM! Magnificent. A must visit!

Unfortunately the GSM is not currently available at the cellar door but we're still pouring the full squid ink range and have the new sparkling shiraz on tasting. Cheers and thanks for the great review
