Malbec, Merlot and Medoc out of stock, although we finished up with a reasonably acceptable Cabernet Sauvignon. suggested by the sommelier. Would definitely go again, and will make more... More

We stayed here for my wife's birthday November 2016, the staff from check in to leaving were excellent, the room in the keep was very good.
