A great selection of wine presented by a true character. Definitely recommend trying the Chardonnay and the Touriga. Also a great place to take a picnic as there is tables and a grassed area available.

Today we went to the McWilliam just to spent some time but we ended up having a fantastic evening. Paul made our visit special with his knowledge and enthusiasm. If you can take a time to do the winery tour.

We visited as a group of 5 and had a wonderful time with Paul, who was super knowledgeable and friendly. We tried a wonderful variety of wines and also bought some special bottles home. Would definitely recommend!

Our visit was perfectly timed before a bus load of tourists. It was a lot of fun having sole attention and knowledge of Paul, he was very infomative and very entertaining. McWilliams was the best stop on our tour!

Wonderful experience. Friendly staff who gave an interesting history of the winery. Great atmosphere in the wine barrel. Tasted a variety of wines and port. Came away with a nice haul of goodies. Highly recommend a visit to this winery.

We actually thought it was closed but went to see what we could see. It seems if someone is there, even when it isn't meant to be open, then they open the gates. So bonus for us. We tasted lots of wines and some Rum...More

Hi Lyn, Glad you came to see, and try, and like! The Tawny Rum and Tawny Whisky are two new products to our flavor infused fortified range and the Hanwood 1913 Durif has won a lot of awards for us as well. Great Picks.
