We had lunch at the winery with family & friends. Good menu with gluten free options. Room was small but air conditioned. Had a great time however view was a little disappointing.

I've dined here with my family recently (including 2 children, one with gluten intolerance). The food is really lovely fresh home-made style meals. There were a lot of gluten-free options on the menu which was refreshing to see and kids meals too. The atmosphere and...More
