We went to a beautiful wine tasting recently it was Red wine accompanied by food to taste. Disappointed with the food it did not equal the beautiful tastings that we have had before. Not sure that we would go again. But probably will. The reason being you have one of the best winemakers that we know and usually the staff... More

Thanks Mary for your review about our last Wine & Food Matching Session. We aim to showcase local food producers / establishments in these sessions and I guess all the food won't always suit everyone, every time. Sorry this time wasn't to your liking, but glad you enjoyed the wine. Look out for our next session on September 23rd -... More

I visited the cellar door at Goolwa and was warmly welcomed by a lovely staff member, Judy. Great introduction to a lovely range of local wines. Excellent customer service. She knew her wines and steered me in the right direction, thanks Judy.

It is not well known tourist destination and a few kilometres off the main road but worth a visit. The chardonnay and rose were good and well priced. Serviced in the tasting room was professional and friendly.
