I like a sweeter wine and I really liked their Cooper wine. A great suggestion from the staff. We enjoyed the chairs and view from the outdoor seating area. Cute little gift shop as well. Don’t miss this one!

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!
