Highly recommended for a lazy Sunday lunch. Make sure to book your table under the Oak trees surrounded by the vineyards. Service was brilliant. Food delectable! The Estate wine was lovely.

Stopped out of curiosity, beautiful dining place, food looked very good, Both fireplaces burning and was just a little bit to warm inside for us, but had some wine tasting and was a nice experience. Good history on the wines etc..

We popped in to Abingdon Vineyard for the very first time, on a whim. late last Saturday afternoon, and had THE MOST DELIGHTFUL experience. We tasted many different wines produced on the farm and all were equally excellent. Jane and Ian, the owners, were so hospitable and friendly. We will always make a point of visiting again, at any time... More

We stopped at Abingdon out of curiosity and found ourselves at the bar sitting down for a tasting of the wines made on the farm. We were served by the Owner himself who gave great insight into the wine, the history of the farm and the vineyards. Absolutely impressive and a fantastic surprise. The wine is fantastic as well.

Heard great things about the Abingdon wine farm but really can't attest to it. With no one picking the phone it seemed reasonable to just drive there but the bad reception and service of a more than haughty Mrs had us turning back just as soon as we came. Perhaps the food is good...but wouldn't support a business that has... More

We were unable to assist these three clients for lunch as the restaurant was fully booked and last orders had already been placed as it was after 3pm. Despite our best efforts to answer all calls that come in during the lunch period, it is sometimes impossible on busy days. We did however, offer the guests the opportunity to do... More

Despite the Howick tourist office not having a clue, we were able to find this very lovely wine estate by chance. The dirt road leading to the estate was a concern, but persistence payed off. The wine estate is very small, but picturesque! The lunch time menu is very popular and tables go fast. I recommend tasting all the whites... More

The wine tasting was lovely. Their Abingdon syrah/cabernet blend is exquisite. Father and daughter did the wine tasting and mom was in the kitchen. A very special place. Pleasantly surprised this vineyard in the Midlands.
