Had an awesome time, staff are friendly, professional, welcoming, and have a great sense of humour. Tasting is great value and left with half a dozen bottles and feeling very pleased. Great experience, lots of fun, highly recommend.

We were two couples walking among the wineries in the area. We started at Torlesse and had a great wine tasting then returned before closing to continue our tasting. Everyone was friendly, helpful, humorous. Not only did we enjoy some great wines and company, we were able to purchase 8 bottles which were thoughtfully (and thankfully) delivered to our accomodation several kilometres away while we walked back. Great visit - we shall be back!

We had a fabulous tasting with Kym, the owner, right before closing. He went the extra mile to introduce and explain many of his products. We’re experienced wine tasters 😂 and were thoroughly impressed. It obviously worked as we bought a case. Kym made us feel like mates whilst still being a responsible host. Will definitely be back.

What a wonderful experience staying with our Motorhome at Torlesse Vineyard, we bought a few bottles of wines over a few days, then family joined us here for a wonderful platter, couldn’t fault it, the staff are very friendly and the wines are great and affordable

This is up there with one of my favorite wineries. What we loved the most was the super friendly host who shared her knowledge willingly and with humour. Well priced wines that also tasted great. I'm not a red wine drinker but Torlesse could convert me. We loved our time here and highly recommend this winery. Planning to come back in March with family for lunch.

Wonderful hospitality from Torlesse winery, and some affordable wine that’s really worth trying. After an appalling experience at Pegasus, it was so refreshing to find great, knowledgeable staff and a warm welcome at Torlesse. Don’t miss it!

We couldn’t have been happier with Torlesse Winery as the venue for our Forever Green Christmas function
It was a perfect day enjoyed by all the wine tasting went down a treat with the staff and the generous platters with a great variety of cheeses meats and condiments
Kym and Maggie are a welcoming team and of course we left with a few purchases of their wines and more.

Stopped for tasting - met by the owner Kym Rayner. He's a very dry Aussie (but we won't hold that against him). I see some unhappy reviews about him - not right - he was funny and we understood his humour - our two ladies thought he was great and spent a fait amount of time having him on and laughing. I suspect that some of the reviewers have a very small sense of humour. Anyway - the tasting was good - Pinot Noir was nice - the Tawny Port was very good - and the Creme de Cassis would go very well on ice cream. We managed to liberate a few bottles and drank them on our further travels - all good. Don't change anything Kym - we enjoyed your company and your comments. Recommend a visit - just take your sense of humour with you!
