Every single wine I tasted was superb. Ending up taking the Luna Spark wine home (dessert wine with bubbles, so good). Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Wish I could have taken more wine home with me!

Beautiful little winery which serves excellent wines. The staff are very friendly and professional. The 2016 Dam Merlot was fantastic with nice soft finish. One of the first wineries to visit as you leave Cessnock.
