It’s great to discover small boutique wineries that are new to us. We had a lovely afternoon wine tasting and enjoying a substantial platter. Our hosts were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Definitely one to revisit.

Kishan, the owner is a wonderful host. So much knowledge about his wines and those of other wineries. Tasted things we wouldn’t normally drink, but enjoyed the experience when guided through it. Some traditional wines but some new and innovative wines which are just delicious.
The platter was perfect and generous.
So nice to be supporting a small batch producer and a small family business.
We will be back. Cheers!

Absolutely beautiful experience!! This winery is stunning, intimate, and the staff are so knowledgeable, but personable, friendly and approachable too. They stepped us through a beautiful tasting, and their wines are stunning. I'm not normally a white wine drinker, but their Fiano is divine! The platter we had was amazing and full of local produce.
Such a lovely, friendly winery, highly recommend you visit here!

Thanks Kishan and team for a lovely afternoon. We spent nearly 3 hours here over a beautiful platter of meats and cheeses and a wine tasting flight. The standout for us was the Red Fury Tempranillo Grenache. Winter is a fine time to visit. Take your time here, it’s no ordinary cellar door experience.

Was barely aware of Hastwell and
Lightfoot before dropping in on a whim. Bravo! Sensational winery. Will be back again for sure. Couldn’t recommend any higher. Friendly atmosphere, rare wines, knowledgeable staff, good selection.

We spent a super afternoon at this family owned & operated cellar door. Mark & Kishan were friendly & very knowledgable, not only about their wines, but also about the local area. We enjoyed a tasty platter with a bottle of Vermentino, sitting on the verandah, taking in the views. Their Tempranillo & Fiano wines didn't disappoint either - we left with a mixed dozen! Highly recommended experience!

Thanks for your review super to hear you enjoyed your time with us. Nothing better than sharing a platter with a wine on the deck unless it is a cold winter's day and you have the platter and wine on one of our Chesterfield lounges in from of out warm fire! Look forward to seeing you again soon

Thought we'd try something a bit different to the more well known cellar doors around McLaren Vale and this was a pleasant surprise. The knowledgeable staff took the time to guide us through their range, and we learnt a few things along the way about wine. The Tempranillo was our pick of the bunch! Room was cosy on a cold winters afternoon, platter was generous, wines were well priced. Staff were all friendly making the experience feel personal! All up a great time, was glad we took the time to check out this gem, will be back!

Hubby and I loved the personal attention we received. Felt like we were important customers. Knowledgeable staff met out every need. We walked away with so many wines because we couldn’t choose! Even though it was close to closing time we weren’t hurried away at all. In fact were treated to an extra reserve wine not on the menu. Will be back for sure.

Thanks for those very kind words about our Cellar Door. Kishan certainly does a great job and knows his stuff. We always try to please and not rush our customers . Next time try one of our platters with a glass (or 2) Thanks for purchasing the wines too, we are very proud of them
