The wines at Brancott are truly incredible and the view is stunning. The problem is, the staff was almost distracted and less than helpful at times. Still a positive experience overall.

After sampling a few of their sensational wines, we went out onto the terrace to admire the 180 degree view of their estate, with hills and mountains as a backdrop.... More

We went as a group for a friend's birthday lunch, the food was different- minimal and simple but nice. The building and interior is stunning and feels very top class. The views and location on the hill are amazing as well, overlooking their wineries. Would definitely recommend for a nice and classy lunch.
