Tasting: lovely and informative; Cellar tour: personalized (we were a family of four) and detailed, led by the owner, with hands-on corking and heat-shrink capping for the kids. Very pleased we chose to visit Lynx.

A small friendly place with a passionate owner who led us through the tasting and showed us the workings. A charming host who is knowledgeable and informative. The wines are delicious. Makes a refreshing change from some of the larger more touristy wineries.
