We stopped for lunch, had a 3 course meal each with their recommended wine pairings - every bite delicious and presented exceptionally. Staff were attentive, friendly, and fun. Experience was enhanced when we met Diana feeding the rescued falcons! Thanks all!

The minimalist building on the hill makes you feel like you are eating floating above the vineyard. Great food, good service and excellent wine. We were group of eight so the only negative was a bit of a lag between us all receiving our meals.
