The place is not easy to find but a great experience! Gin lovers: make the effort and discover this distillery and wine maker. Very warm and charming reception by the owner followed by an inspiring tasting. Taste as well the red wines without sulfites added!

Upland wine and spirits are a true labour of love and learning about the production from the wine maker was fascinating. Elsie's cards,made on site, are worth the visit in themselves. This was the highlight of our trip so far!

Very off-the-beaten track venue - no signage to speak of so we nearly ended up in the middle of the bush in a very low-slung sportscar... HOWEVER, the tasting and personality of the Edmund & his amazing pack of hounds (see and you will understand!)...More

Very authentic, tiny rustic wine farm tucked away in the mountains. Difficult to find - follow the signs to "fisantekuil". World class spirits - the limoncello is to die for. One on one wine tasting with the owner/distiller, very intimate.
