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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A fine dining experience with excellent service. The ambience of the restaurant and the cellar was pretty good. The experience was amplified with colourful butterflies flying around the garden.

Great menu, great food and great service in the restaurant. Spent $700 for six people including drinks. Disappointingly, went downstairs for a wine tasting and was told it would cost $15 / head despite already having spent $700 ! All other wineries where I have...had lunch would waive that fee. On principle our group left without the tasting.More

My wife and I had an outstanding wine tasting and dining experience at De Bortoli with 2 of our friends. Booking the lunch and wine tasting was very simple. We arrived on time and were immediately taken to a tasting table by our host David....He provided us with an outstanding tasting experience, varying from the standard tasting list as he discerned our preferences. De Bortoli has a good range of wines and it was easy to find quite a few that we really liked. We then moved upstairs to the restaurant where the excellent service continued as we were served a delicious meal. Having decided our mains, I went back to discuss with David in the cellar door what wine would be best to try with the food. We had an excellent red blend. Starters, mains and desserts were excellent. After we finished lunch, we moved back to the cellar door to make some purchases and David insisted on us tasting some of the premium reds that he thought we might like - as a result he "upsized" our purchases but we were very happy to do so.More
