Thank you Leah for joining us and exploring the wines and the cellar. We do like to keep it as a working museum so people can imagine how it used to be done.
A beautiful, comy and cosy winery to visit. Old sty. Old horse stable actually. Once in, you just don't want to leave. The atmosphere is amazing, and the young lady that served us was lovely and friendly. A nice warm fire was happening, and I...More

Hi Mukesh, thanks for dropping in for a look. It's always a great pleasure to serve customers who enjoy theirs and want experience a bit of history.
Was invited by family members who have been here before and wasn't disappointed. Staff were very helpful in explaining the different wines and the history of the winery. You can also do a self guided tour of the cellar which is well worth it. Prices...More

At last I have managed to reach you. There are a couple of places in Great Western within 2 minutes of us. Salingers Café and The Great Western Hotel. Both located on the main Highway going through town.
