A great view over the vineyard and some different varieties of wine to taste. Recommend making an appointment or calling in on an open day to try something a little bit different from your standard varieties.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We do have many different wines to try...varieties that no one else in Tassie grows. Glad you enjoyed trying them.

A very enjoyable vineyard visit. The hosts are so friendly and knowledgeable and the wine tasting includes some unusual wines. Wine can also be purchased by glass/bottle. The garden and views are beautiful too, very relaxing spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine.

Thank you Nicolas C for taking the time to review us. We DO have a great view and because of the large garden it changes constantly. Glad you enjoyed our Pinot Gris.
