A beautiful property, warm welcome and helpful, positive staff made this visit to taste a range of specialty wines worthwhile. A lovely rose and a gewurztraminer (which they are no longer going to be making) were our favourites.

Thank you very much for your lovely review. We will continue to make our Crackling Rose. Sadly the Gewurztraminer will no longer be made as the variety is out of fashion and people no longer buy it.
