After the drive in from the highway and a tasting at the Villa D Esta Winery, (refer to Villa D Esta Winery review), the decision to travel an extra 1.5km and visit this winery, certainly wasn’t difficult.
The attached vineyard is closer to the road than the previous winery. Once again the cellar door was open with wines, ports and liqueurs on display.
For those who are interested in the workings of a winery, there is a glass window through to the production area of the winery. The tasting room is adorned with vintage style memorabilia, adding a nice rustic touch to the room.
Cheese platter and coffee are available for purchase, with a lovely shaded outside area to sit and enjoy.
We were quickly joined by owner Steve who provided plenty of local information relating to the winery, as well as the inevitable wine tasting.
Chardonnay and Chambourcin wines were my tasting if choice. Ports were offered, and duly tasted. Somehow, another box of assorted wines and ports made its way to the boot of the car after we finished purchasing.
These wines are also preservative free.
A note for this winery, take cash if you wish to buy as there are no eftpos facilities available.
Again I recommend turning off the highway at Nabiac, travelling the 10-12 Kim’s to visit these winery’s and sampling their wines. It really us worth it- don’t let the roadworks put you off!
