Matt (Rechner) who runs this has got the formula spot-on - visited over Easter for a family gathering - tasted all his wines and they are all good. Plus had a meal. The restaurant is well worth a visit as it has a great selection of menu choices in a custom built setting next to the vines. The wines have... More

Well done Matt and long awaited revival. Excellent decor and views over the vineyard. Food was excellent with great variety of choices. After a little more staff training (only one hiccup at our table) I would definitely give you a 5, my rating was a very high 4. See you next time

Called in here today for a quick look. It's quite an impressive place and unexpectedly large and busy. Seems to be new and very well presented. Was expecting a small cellar door but was surprised by the place. A brief taste of wines then departed. A well set out restaurant there too. Tasting room was too hot though.

Well worth stopping in for lunch and a glass of red, you could also spend a day blending your own wine if you're into that sort of thing. One of my early wine tasting experiences in mclaren vale and still one of the best.

Excellent foods and wines at this awesome joint. You will not be disappointed. The mains are a bit pricey as the quantity isnt that much. But you do get quality foods. The decorations of the plates could however use more details.
