  • I cannot rate this restaurant and winery highly enough. My partner and I visited at the end of our trip and only had an hour to squeeze in a lunch. From the moment we booked, the staff accommodated our short time frame and were cheerful and helpful with everything. We arrived early to walk the grounds, strolling down the rolling hills and through the wetland with swans and ducks. We also got in half an hour of wine tasting, with a really interesting range of interesting wines to suit different tastes, with the true strength being the Rieslings. For our meal, we only had time for a starter and main, and the waiters and kitchen made sure everything came out quickly for us. The dishes were out of this world, presented beautifully with well balanced flavours, and fresh natural ingredients. We were lucky enough to be there for a special dish if lobster tail and truffle. My only regret is that we couldn't commit to a long afternoon of boozy lunching. Don't miss this place, and make sure you leave yourself enough time and money to really enjoy it!
  • Most beautiful winery I've ever visited in the world! Absolutely stunning grounds and interior. Photos really don't do it justice. The restaurant wasn't open when we were there but the menu looked great and the restaurant atmosphere and patio were gorgeous. Sadly the wine was not my favorite, but all the rest make up for it.
