Great platters, so much better than the usual winery platters. The service was excellent and friendly. A great place for a leisurely lunch.

We came for the wine tasting. They still produce some lovely wines and often something differant from other wineries. Friendly, chatty staff behind the counter.

The tasting is free if you prchase but they otherwise ask for a donation to their local wildlife charity. After the tasting we had a platter for 3. It was beautifully presented and... More

Based on several previous lunch visits we introduced two friends to this winery. And of course we were not disappointed with a platter for four tempting us with every mouthful. Excellent bread with dips to die for.. A selection of four salads that reminded us of the versatility of lentils and barley (even winning over the two blokes) plus a... More

This winery provides light lunches consisting of soups and crusty bread and a fantastic platter of cold cuts, cheeses, olives etc all from the local area. When combined with one of their wines it provides an enjoyable lunch.

Took advantage of the Grab One deals for a lunch platter and wine. Never disappointed by the quality of the food, wine, views and company.
