Haute Cabriere is my favorite vineyard and the tasting was fantastic, the service from the staff was wonderful, we had a superb cheese plate and enjoyed every single moment we were there.

Detailed and informative wine and MC tasting. The inviting cellar is authentic and a calm respite from the 35 degrees celsius summer heat. Their Pierre Jourdan Cuvee Bella Rose is a darling.

This was our first tasting of the day - and the weather was amazing. This meant that sitting outside 'drinking' in the view (sorry about that) was nearly as much a pleasure as the wine tasting itself. The tasting itself is inside a large cellar-style...More
