Went for a birthday celebration, expecting to experience 'fine dining". The food was bland, less than mediocre. The waiter was uninformed. The view and location is wonderful, but the overall experience was really disappointing. All the food needed salt. The food is way overpriced. Pretty...More

What a magnificent place to visit. It's a bit of a crawl up to the venue but worth it! We tasted incredible wines with a very knowledgeable sommelier. We will definitely be visiting again for lunch sometime.

The vineyards that bear the fruit of Idiom are called “Da Capo” which means “from the beginning” or “from the Cape” in Italian, a reference to the fact that the vineyards were carefully laid out and planted on the farm for the first time in 1999.We Opened the Idiom Tasting Centre in 2016. We offer a beautiful Lunch venue with Spectacular views accompanied by great food and word class wines. We also offer various wine tasting options.
