A pleasant afternoon wine tasting made all the better with our visit to Crabtree Wines. Small intimate setting with excellent service. Very pleasant. We will be back with friends.

Hallelujah! We visited the winery and tasted the Watervale Reisling. Much drier than we expected and lacking the unwanted sweetness we recalled from Reislings many years before. Pleasing drop. We also fancied the Tempranillo. Worth a visit with each persons taste to their own.

Quaint cottage type cellar door. Friendly welcoming service although maybe a little more info offered on wines and history of region. Lovely wines from their 2016 Tempranillo, 2014 Shiraz and many more including Riesling and Rose. Worth a drop in.

Great little cellar door. Gorgeous old building and in a beautiful spot. The wines were good and the cellar door assistant was very nice and made you feel comfortable. Had a great feel about it. Best Riesling we had tasted all day.

Returned again after a couple of years. Always made to feel most welcome here including our dog Barry. Enjoyed tasting the wines especially the Rieslings and another dozen on it's way back to WA.
