Thank you Luisa Adonis for an excellent wine tasting. You made our day. Personal with finger tip feeling. This place is something extra. Perfection combined with true love for wine and winemaking. Highly recommended.

Cute family owned winery. Enjoyed their cabs and was a big fan of the new rose they recently launched at their sister vineyard (Sutherland).
