We all loved our visit here. Informative without waffling on and on. Really interesting stuff, even if wine isn't your thing. The tasting was great and although we didn't eat in the cafe, it looked clean and the food looked good.

A pleasant walk around and well explained processes but rather disappointing wine and not a lot else to see. Some awkward access/ pipes etc for disabled.

A lovely cafe, good service, simple but excellent food. We visited for lunch and a quick look in the shop. The food seems particularly fresh.

Our visit to the Estate was both interesting and enjoyable. But that was because we took the tour - without that there would have been little to hold us. And although the tour started some 10 minutes later than booked and commenced in a rather...More
