VISIT US

Our Cellar Door and Wine Sensory Garden is now open, but we are currently limited to 6 people at any one time in line with the Stage 4 covid-19 operating requirements. Wine tastings are now seated and we recommend pre-booking through our website, or by phone . Our wine tastings now have a tasting fee which may be redeemable on wines purchased on the day of your tasting. 

Walk-ins for tastings are fine also but please be aware that you may have to wait outside, or wander around our beautiful garden if we already have 6 people in cellar door.

Every tasting is still hosted by Cathy, the winemaker, providing visitors with the rare opportunity to talk directly with the person who has made the wines.

There are 2 wine tasting experiences available, a seated wine tasting and the Pick & Sip Tasting and Garden Tour. Both are bookable through our website, or by phone. We will be commencing a private wine tasting in our barrel room with the winemaker starting in September.

At this point in time, we do not provide food but you are most welcome to bring your own picnic. So why not plan to stay a little longer, relax, enjoy a picnic and play a round or two of petanque! There are plans to offer pre-booked picnic hampers starting in Spring, themed for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

Dogs are welcome to visit with you too as long as they are kept on a lead as we are working farm, with sheep and horses, and we have lots of lambs running around at the moment.

EXPERIENCE THE WINE SENSORY GARDEN

The Wine Sensory Garden is the centre piece of our wine tasting experience, with it’s plantings of fruit trees, herbs, flowers and seasonal vegetables which describe and match the flavours, textures and styles of our wines.

The Garden will immerse all of your five senses in the experience and you will discover along the way how to describe the flavours that you are tasting in a wine as well as learning how simple it is to pair food with wine.

Visitors can either take themselves on a self guided tour around the Garden or book into a Pick and Sip Tour.  The Pick & Sip Tour is offered 5 days a week at 11am each morning and 3pm each afternoon.
