A lovely setting next to a small lake with swans and ducks the antipasti platter was very generous for two and supplemented by a tasting from the winery made for a very pleasant lunch. The staff are very knowledgeable and the wines are of the highest quality and variety

I come here every year to buy wine before heading back to Europe.. We just had the seafood platter and a glass of wine or two. A great atmosphere..good wine and pretty good food. I've not had anything else before... but the platters are generous and pretty good!!! Well worth the visit..
