What a wonderful stay we had with Renee and Dave. I had to work in the area on the Saturday, so we booked the Romantic Vineyard to make a weekend of it. We were not disappointed. Renee and Dave welcomed us into their home with warmth and sincerity. We never felt uncomfortable. Renee’s food is beyond excellent – foodies heaven!...

Out in the bush with lots of character. Renee & Dave are great hosts with lots of wine on offer. Wine tasting was outside around the fire while watching the sunset. Dave's collection of records in the back shed is hugh. Renee cooked a beautiful pasta dinner for us. Thanks
