The cellar door is open daily, offering wine with wood-fired pizzas, platters and cheeseboards for lunch. Sunset dinners from Friday to Sun start from 4 pm (bookings required). Live music is a weekend feature. Join the Philosophy of Wine Tour every Saturday afternoon from 1.30 pm (bookings essential) and spend an hour with Australian Winemaker of the Year Mike Hayes.
