Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Underwhelmed, waited a while before anyone noticed us. $20 charge for tasting experience of up to 8 wines. We were only interested in about five wines and thought $20 a bit expensive for the experience. Employee seemed disinterested in attending to us and we left without paying for the experience. What a difference when we visited Mandela winery. The person we spoke to was very entertaining and we all thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Only $10 each for the tasting and we ended up buying eight bottles of wine there.

I booked for a large group family gathering of 18 and the person handling my booking made it very hard for us to book, we had to pre order from a set menu 2 weeks in advance which meant I had to chase my group up for their orders. Its understandable that the reason is for catering purposes, however on the day of the booking. We had the table from 1pm but we only got served the 1st courses at 2.30pm! They weren't taking our orders, so why did it had to take so long? The kitchen clearly can't handle large bookings even with a preorder 2 week ahead! I had to call them multiple times to top up our water, and given the amount of wine we ordered, the waitering staff should try to keep us hydrated instead of ignoring us.
About the food, the food weren't fantastic or good for the price we are paying for 3 courses. My octopus carpaccio and braised duck agnolotti was horrible tasting. The slow cooked pork fillet was horrible. So far the only thing we were impressed with is the view and location, the reputation of the winery may be long standing, however I wouldn't go back for the food at Locale!!

We both thoroughly enjoyed visiting the various animals and listening to the talks, especially the Birds of Prey show. We did not expect the Healesville sanctuary to be as big as it was, and took a bit longer than the suggested time (which was great since this is a self-paced tour!).

The De Bortoli restaurant was top notch, and beats out surrounding fine dining restaurants in terms of flavour. We ended up grabbing a few bottles thanks to the lovely service we received at the wine tasting at the end.

The visit to the chocolaterie was a nice touch too, and we got some great tasting choccies there.

Thank you Timothy for such a lovely review. This package does prove to be a popular experience, incorporating, wine, wildlife and chocolate, a perfect combination. We are pleased that the whole day met your expectations.

I called in for one of their $10 wines tastings.

One can choose 8 wines from a generous selection of options including red white and desert wines.

My female server was very knowledgeable and friendly.

The wines were very enjoyable.
