Went there for wine tasting, didn’t make a lunch booking. Requested to be given a table if one becomes available. Staff were absolutely rushed off their feet, we had to finish our wine tasting with 2 different staff. Once we were given the table the staff who couldn’t finish the wine tasting with us came & apologized which was really good. We were seated & I had the Holoumi salad & hubby had lamb. Yummy food. Awesome views & recommend making a booking if you are planning to stay for lunch.

Amazing views! Definitely worth the stop for the views. Tastings are expensive $5-$15 each. Wines were alright, we bought a bottle and were waived one tasting fee which we thought was steep. Nothing to brag about for a wine that can be purchased from the supermarket for cheaper than at the cellar door.

We always take guests for lunch to Brancott Restaurant,as it never fails to impress,not only the view,but also the the quality of the food and excellent service.
The falcons are an interesting and worthwhile project.

Our group (4 adults, 1 child) had a fantastic dining experience at Brancott. The restaurant is set on a hill with sweeping views overlooking the vineyard (180 degree views). You can walk from the carpark up the hill to the restaurant but you can also call for transport (which we did). The food was excellent, pork tenderloin my pick. It's worth splashing out for the Chosen Rows Sauvignon Blanc - outstanding. Service was excellent - very informative on the location, food and wines - and made sure the child was kept occupied.

Had a beautiful lunch today with an amazing view. Would highly recommend it.
We had the fish and the lamb. Both beautiful, well seasoned. Also did a wine tasting that was very nice.
