What our customers have to say...
Geraldine: "Great experience tasting at Whitehaven. Surroundings were beautiful. Kaz was friendly, knowledgeable and even sneaked us an extra wine to taste - thinking (correctly) that some of our pre- conceived tastes should be challenged. All the wines that we tasted were excellent, including ones we wouldn't usually have picked. I would definitely buy Whitehaven wines and can highly recommend a visit."
Sarah: "We had lunch here in between tastings, and then popped in to the winery for a wine tasting which was really lovely. We did our wine tasting with Kaz, who was super friendly and full of information on the different wines. Lovely experience here, well worth stopping off as part of a wine tour. "
Michael: "Slick operation from the perfect hostesses. Bought every wine we tasted as they are so good. Take your credit card as it will get loaded.
Thanks for the great day. Your no 1 fan."
Sandra: "Lovely little Winery with a brilliant bubbly called „The Daughters“ and a very tasty Sauvignon Blanc! Not too many tables but the service and the quality is outstanding!"
Oakland: "A truly beautiful tasting experience, certainly one of the best in the area of the handful we tried. The wines were so exceptional that we immediately ordered some to ship home. Highly recommended!"Sophie: "The people who work here are incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating, we were looked after so well. Stunning goats cheese and brie platter!"
Jeff: "Great place to try wines and gins. Great staff with an abundance of knowledge."
Emma: "Lovely tasting experience at Whitehaven with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great wines - we particularly enjoyed the Pinot Gris and even made a detour on our way back through the area a week later to pick up some bottles to take home. Would recommend."
