As with most wineries in this district the views are to die for. What is so special about Lynx is the wines are all superb and their Rosé is to die for!

A small-scale winery that feels off the beaten track. Staff was very welcoming and offered us a tour of the cellar and a very informal tasting. It's a relatively modest space, but still with a lovely porch and views out to the vines and mountains....More

We truly enjoyed Lynx winery. It is a small winery off the beaten path and very much worth a visit. Jason was knowledgeable, personable and highly interactive. The wines were smooth, impressive and stood out over other wineries in the area.
