What To Expect
Enjoy a wonderful flight of 11 wines in a 200-year-old cottage – by the fire, in the history room or on the deck overlooking the river. A cheese platter with local hard and soft cheese is the perfect accompaniment for the tastings and also a great light lunch. The service and information we receive from the welcoming staff, and owners and makers are just as lovely as the wine and cheese.
