The views are wonderful and the wine is lovely. Can't ask for much more than that! A great family run business that is very welcoming. The platter was fairly basic for the price however this didn't stop us enjoying our visit.

Amidst large expanse of lush greenery the cottages offer a very relaxing getaway for family fun. The cellar door offers a delectable selection of wines not to be missed.
