On a beautiful day, this was the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful meal and amazing wine while looking out over the estate. Even though it was very busy, we had excellent service, and a delicious meal of John Dory accompanied by some equally delicious wines from the estate. Recommend booking a table in advance as they do get very... More

A lovely setting with a beautiful restaurant, sadly it was fully booked when we were there so book early to get a table. The views from the restaurant are stunning. Well worth visiting. Can also see the falcons on walk back to car park. Car park is quite a walk up a steep hill but they run a bus constantly... More

well worth a visit here even if it is just for the wine taste or coffee. The views of the surrounding vineyards are worth seing. The falcon walk and heritage video was interesting. although we had bikes we chose to drive as it is a bit of the main wine trails

We had this as a lunch stop on our itinerary but had not made reservations. We arrived after a 90 mins drive from our motel and starving. Unfortunately they were all booked!

Stopped by there today....impressive selection of estate wines ...informative staff that guided us through the tasting. Interesting to find out about the soils and grapes used for different white wines. Estate uses falcons for controlling predators and we saw a Harrier Hawk take out a mouse in front of us. Can see two falcons on the estate. Great views from... More
