  • Think more than just wine tasting (although of course this is a must). This is an excellent spot to come and relax while you enjoy some great wine (get a bottle). They are pretty high up in the hills so the view is amazing. Food we didn't try but if the service and atmosphere is anything to go by it's safe to say it will be good.
