Lucky for me I am a local and can visit as often as I like. If you are looking for a fantastic vineyard to taste wines and eat a beautiful meal - this vineyard must be... More

As locals, annually we attend the Lovedale Long Lunch. This year we were terribly disappointed by organisation and staff at Wandin Estate. Upon arriving at 1.30pm half of our group was denied entry due to 'capacity'. For the few of us who made it in, we stood for 1.15hrs in the drinks line to literally be standing at the register...

We used to stay here every year with family. Moving the cellar from upstairs to downstairs was a big mistake its just not inviting! The man who served us was very, very grouchy and made me feel uncomfortable... and they were closed on the monday public holiday. This place has really lost its beautiful essence of what it was... my... More

The overall estate at Wandin was beautiful and picturesque almost like a movie. The upper villas by the swimming pool looked very nice. They had air conditioning, washing machines etc... The swimming pool was great, especially with all the kids that were involved in the wedding party. We saw move kangaroos that weekend than we have in our 6 years... More

I really enjoyed seeing the kangaroos as we drove up to the tasting room. We dropped in on a Monday afternoon and were welcomed by a lovely, friendly and very knowledgeable staff member. We tried some of their white wines... More
