We called ahead of time to make sure they were open. Friendly service and good knowledge about the wines they were offering. They said that this coming Sunday will be the last day for buying wines as the winery is sold and the Ransom name...More

Started by a local family who have made an interesting selection of great wines . Gorgeous location with pretty rural outlook . Great platters for lunch alongside a wine of your choice or a tasting of several wines. Great service .

Superb restaurant - the signature platters are to die for - washed down with an excellent home grown wine - tasteful surroundings and a view across the vineyards - worthy of its reputation

We stopped at Ransom for a decadent lunch on our honeymoon and we were not dissapointed. The winery is stunning, inside and out. It's elegant but not so much that it makes you uncomfortable. We ordered their signature platter and 2 tasting paddles. The platter...More
