Great wine tasting op - everything from from whites to Rose, reds and ports. This wine maker doesn't follow the crowd but makes wine that is meant to be enjoyed. Try the white port then try leaving without buying a bottle!

Very lovely wine tasting with the owner himself as host. Nice selection of wines but especially the unique walnut liqueur must not be missed in your tasting!

We almost drove right by this little gem but so glad we stopped and found not only the the owner Mike a delight but the wine yummy. My favorite was the rosé dry and peachy so great for a light supper. Now they have a walnut liquor that is made just for you guys out there that don't like rosé.... More

This is a great little winery with a limited selection of wines. Do not let this stop you visiting as it is worth it. Small in quantity but huge in quality reds, whites and fortifieds. Just off the main road with easy parking, very recommended.
