Hi I was wondering if anyone can help me. my husband and I are coming to Jersey for the first time in November I believe the tours are finished by then which the husband is very sad about! can you look about at all if they do not offer tours? and is it worth a visit without a tour what are you able to do there such as walk around vineyards/ wine tasting etc.. or is it just a restaurant and shop if so is it worth the trip? we will be using the bus from St Helier and on the way stopping to do the War Tunnels so this is a little further up just wanted to know if it's still worth having a look around at? thanks Melissa

Is it possible to visit just for a meal in the restaurant? I've heard the chef is excellent.
