Mahana Estates team are very welcoming and the location and view are beautiful. We really enjoyed our wine tasting and were lucky enough to have the Assistant Wine Maker walking us through the collection who was very knowledgeable. The food was delicious and our server was lovely.

I took a group of overseas visitors there for dinner. We were one of only 2 tables - apparently lunch is their specialty - and got great service from the... More

Our young waitress was slow on her service however one called Linda was spot on and very very hard working and willing to please. The food was fresh, tasty and as for the seafood sharing dish it was more... More

All of our guests were blown away by the beautiful venue. The ceremony was lovely and the reception in the Cellars was stunning and so much fun. Thanks to the fantastic wedding coordinator and great staff we had a day we will never forget. The food was delicious and everyone loved the wines, especially the Rosè. ❤️
