Explore 10 hectares of family owned vineyard where you can join one of our relaxed and interactive vineyard tours which

Alternatively you can book a luxury vineyard picnic with wine which can be enjoyed on the vineyard, on the balcony overlooking the vineyard or in the winery depending on the weather!

John the owner and winemaker enjoys growing some unusual cool climate grape varieties such as Cabernet Noir and Schönburger, and also some more traditional varieties such as Bacchus, Solaris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. From these grapes he produces innovative and award winning wines using his skills from his background in farming and chemistry. John delights in showing visitors round his newly built winery with state of the art equipment and would love to answer your questions about the processes he uses to grow the grapes, and make the wine that you will be tasting when you visit. After your tour you can sit and relax on our balcony over looking the vines watching them grow in the warm sunshine.
