    We were rushed through the tastings, brief overviews of wines, glasses weren't refreshed between whites and reds. Overall poor experience, was not motivated to buy any wines, and I always do at wine tastings. No sheet to show pricing to consider while doing the tastings, or to make notes.

    Very picturesque venue, relaxed vibe, beautiful wines (with non alcoholic wines and cider choices) and yummy food - we had the cheese platter. Service was great. Highly recommend.

    Long weekend, or even weekend translates to subpar service. We unfortunately had a weirdly passive aggressive server (not all definitely, but ours was) at the restaurant (Book Barn). Other than that, I loved the place.

    Second time doing the wine tasting in 2 months as we wanted to bring friends to the experience. 1st time we came the lady that was doing the tasting was fantastic, took us through all the wines in detail hence we bought lots we we left. This time they were clearly understaffed and it felt very rushed, no explanation on wines being served other than which one we were having, we ended up buy on a few bottles this time. Cheese plate went well with the tasting we really enjoyed it.

    Only had wine tastings and a simple rainbow olives dish. Olives were beautiful. The wines were extensive and very nice on the pallet. The new cellar door room was perfect.

    We had a lovely wine tasting at Bendooley last week. We sat inside next to the fire, looking out on the vines. Deborah (I hope I've remembered correctly!) was delightful and the wines were delicious. Highly recommended.

    What an amazing way to experience a wine tasting at such a beautiful location! We loved having our own table to be able to sit and enjoy both the wines and the company. The staff were great and it sure pays to have people working in the right field. You could tell the staff had a true passion for what they do and we appreciated the fabulous service. Highly recommend!

    We love Bendooley and usually cannot fault it, however on this day they were understaffed and our tasting took nearly 2 hours, with long breaks in-between each sample, we were on a time limit of 1 hour as we were told that is how long it would take. I think they were just over-run as it was the Easter weekend. They most definitely needed more than 2 people working the Cellar Door.

    All I can say is out of 10 the wine is 6. It used to be 3 but theres a little bit of improvement there. The service is OK! The wine tasting was super rushed. Online it says “Knowledgeable Staff”Not sure about that he only described the wine by the name, year, and flavour. Which it was already mentioned on the description. Also I put a note when I was booking it in but nothing happens. Oh well, what do you expect. It’s just all about the ambiance and the views but the wine I recommend “PEPPERGREEN ESTATE” and “CHERRY TREE HILL” they were the real educational wine expert experience not Bendooley Estate.

    Overall good atmosphere and wines. One thing I did not enjoy was the server’s/waiter’s attitude (Indian heritage) He was unenthusiastic and impatient. His performance doesnt inspire customers to purchase more from the cellar door. His pour for the wine tasting among 4x customers on the same table was uneven in volume. Customer service could be better.
