We ate at the Holden Manz Restaurant in the evening and it was lovely. Beautiful set out with a balcony overlooking the wine lads. You could eat outside and the food was amazing and it is the best liquor coffee I have ever had! Would love to return

As part of the wine tour, we went to Holden Manz. The place has good views. They also have a large green area with a water body near the restaurant for the kids to play. The tasting was good and the server was kind enough to change our wines as part of tasting as we prefer white over red wines.... More

One of our favourite vineyards with some gorgeous wines. Shame that out of the six bottles we bought we only managed to bring one home! I'd recommend at least the platinum tasting, though if you plan to buy as we did (since we have been before) you may as well go for the diamond as you get the cost off... More

This was by far our best stop from the wines, setting and service from the staff. On arrival we were greeted with a glass of rose to taste whilst we chose the tasting that we wanted.
