We've been here a number of years and enjoy seeing how it evolves. This time we did a wine tasting followed by a few nibbles. Will be back to do the sculpture trail again some day. Fab place to bring overseas guests.

Food is available in the Glass House kitchen or outside under the vines. A bar outside offers wine tasting. There are 5 Brick Bay wines that can be sampled. If you buy a bottle, the tasting fee is waived.Very friendly staff and picturesque setting.
