We are huge fans of the pinots in this region and Wet Jacket did not disappoint. Had a great afternoon sampling and eating cheese in a gorgeous setting.

We went to the winery for a tasting and it was excellent. Firstly the building is excellent and it felt like a private tasting. The wine was outstanding and we purchased a few bottles. Definitely worth the visit

Highly recommend this as a visit. The wine is excellent and is not sold in shops. John was friendly and informative. Maddie at the cheese tasting was very knowledgeable and chatty. Would have loved to have had a cheese board by the fire.

Wines are superb as is the fabulous Whitestone cheese. On a summer’s day, chilling on the beanbags outside with a glass of vino and a plate of tasties from the food truck is just the ticket.

Wonderful and knowledgeable service at this gorgeous spot. Maddie informed us about the cheese and John told us all about the wine. Both were chatty and smiley. A great experience.
