Wonderful service and a truly memorable experience. My friends and I had the best time at Southern Highlands Winery! The wines are delicious and couldn’t recommend a visit here more.

Memorable day
Mar. 2021
Had a wonderful day at SHW. Went for wine tasting with husband and daughter. Cassandra was so friendly and helpful. Explained all the wines and gave us a tase of the sparkling. As a consequence we purchased 20 bottles. Then went to their restaurant and had a delicious lunch. Caprese Salad, Scotch fillet beautifully cooked and duck gnocchi. Service by Evo and Wydia and Canadian girl was first class with excellent attention to detail. Very impressive. Beautiful atmosphere and views. Highly recommended.

Terrible rude service
Oct. 2020
I had made a booking through our tour company 4 months ago for my 50th as part of our winery tour. They had “lost“ my booking, were not set up or prepared for us, told us they had lots of walk-ins so we had to wait. No apology was given.
The older woman who seemed to be in charge was so so so rude, to the point where she argued with me about my booking.
The girl serving the wines had no idea about the wines, there was no history of the winery, tasting serves weren’t even worth it - she gave everyone a few drops, not enough to properly taste with one mouthful let alone taste for a second time.
One of my guests witnessed the older woman telling the younger staff off in front of her - not at all professional.
There are much better wineries in the area with much better service - do not waste your time with this one.

Great wines but distracted tasting
Sep. 2020
After having discovered one of Southern Highland Wines in the Bundanoon Bottleshop we decided to pay the vineyard a visit. It seemed a bit odd for the tasting table to be in the middle of a function area and it did make for a very distracted tasting. In all fairness however, the guy doing the tasting appeared to be having to look after both the tastings and the function because the only other visible staff member was standing around and doing nothing! That said, he was very knowledgeable and friendly (if distracted) and the wines are lovely. Left happy with a mixed dozen.

Beautiful setting, great wines and all-round wonderful experience!
Sep. 2020
Another great visit to Southern Highlands Winery! We had to return again this year after such a great visit last year. We came for a tasting and ended up staying for a very tasty dinner! All the wines were delicious ... we struggled to decide our favourite! We ended up going with the Shiraz, though highly recommend the Riesling, Rose and Pinot Noir! Cass (Bubbles) was an exceptional host and it was great to catch up with her again! The Tiramisu was divine! Beautiful setting and all round wonderful experience ... Thank you!

The views from the restaurant are great, the food was very good, and despite being very busy, staff were friendly and attentive. Well worth a visit.

Rude lady behind bar

Not a friendly greeting - too busy having cofee, Arrogant in her explanation of wine tasting charges.
Not a very good attitude to sell product or encourage sampling of product. We walked out
.Lost opportunity SHW!!!

The SHW experience has never been better!
Nov. 2019
When you travel a long way to visit a place you often think 'will it be as good as last time?' Surprise!
The new crew we met there last Saturday took it upon themselves to make sure it was better than ever.
We had not met Cassandra or Marco before. From the exceedingly warm 'Cass' welcome to the comfy table and chairs, wine tasting,personal lunch menu discussion with Chef Marco - we had no intention of having lunch there! They had no intention of leaving us anything but very happy to be there. Excellent food,yummy wine and most of all, somebody genuinely pleased to have us there....... I don't know who the SHW owners are, but these people were acting like owners and caring about our well-being? What a change.... thank you team.
The most valuable asset to business owners is that the people working for you act like owners! You can't possibly be luckier than that - I am a business owner!

Excellent Day Out
Nov. 2019
We stopped by here on a hot summer’s day, close to 40 degrees. The dining area was not air conditioned and surprisingly the room was quite hospital. There was only 1 waitress doing the wine tasting, taking orders and serving. As we were not in a rush, we were not bothered by the slow service.

We started with an antipasto plate which was very refreshing. Although the antipasto was for 2, we suspect the chef was a bit more generous as the 3 of us were amply satisfied. We had the pappardelle with rabbit ragu and an eggplant parmigiana. Both dishes were very pleasing.

Wine tasting was $5 per person. As we were dining inhouse, the charge was waived.

An enjoyable day.
