The 50acre estate houses a multi-faceted business comprising of a vineyard, 7,200 square foot tasting rooms, five luxury lodges, restaurant, shop, experience room, gin school, meeting rooms, 50 beehives, one million bees and a bee room for our ‘be a beekeeper for the day’ events and courses. It’s all hands-on in the vineyard, supported by a fabulous and valued team of specialists who have been nurturing the vines and vineyard from the beginning. To ensure that only the very best grapes go into our wines, we harvest our grapes traditionally, by hand.
