We stopped here and we had to wait for almost 10 minutes before someone would help us. Unless your part of a tour they did not seem interested in assisting you.More

Absolutely. Staff very caring but remember it is a winery so there are couples enjoying the day. But your family can enjoy the view and the wine and the surroundings. A peaceful and beautiful spot!
