Overview

We make award winning wines from Tropical Fruit and no this does not mean they are sweet and sticky. They range from very dry wines to ports and they are all commercial standard. The wines are single-fruit wines, not blends. All the fruits we use have big flavours and we grow them in the organic way and in our own orchard. The flavours of the fruits are retained in the wine.

We stopped here today, and it was well worth a visit. The wine tasting was fantastic. We were guided through the wines and as a non wine drinker it was such an informative experience. I would highly recommend a visit.

Thank you for your review. Yes we offer people 4 wines on us or try them all. If you try them all you finish up with just over a glass of wine. Okay to drive for most people. Cheers, Tony and Trudie Woodall.
