Expensive wines, and as a Pinot lover, I think value for money there are much better wineries in the region. It is worth a visit though. There is a cheese shop, a restaurant and the wine tasting area is also beautiful with a cosy fireplace....More

Another excellent Pinot producer ... with a superb Cheese store next door. En route to AJ Hackett and the Kawara River Gorge and just before Peregrine, Gibbston Valley is another highly recommended producer ... and worth the $15 tasting fee

It was a rainy and wet day when we visited resulting in the wine tasting area and restaurant being very busy. Wine tasting was excellent and relaxed. Restaurant accommodating our party of 16 very well.

We got the vitners platter (meat and cheese platter) and two glasses of wine. While slightly pricey it seemed better value than other wineries and we love it. I will be back. The cheese is amazing too.
