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.

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.

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.

We paid $10 to taste 4 wines, from a selected list of either whites, reds or premium so we couldn’t even choose 4 from the menu of 12. They were all poured at once and sat in front of us at our table with very little explanation and no ability to ask questions. We struggled to even find one that we liked amongst the 12 we tried (3 people so had one list each). Would never recommend or come again.

Starting with wine tasting was a good idea, as we could relax and then decide which wine we should continue drinking at lunch. We were in the cellar for lunch, plenty of natural light and space between tables. We ordered the pesto pumpkin feta pine nuts pizza to share, followed by the mushroom entre and eggplant main. Both dishes had middle eastern touches, both were delicious!

They made me wait until 2:15pm and only after I came and asked for the table for the 2nd time. Another couple arrived after me and was given a table before me, so I don’t understand how this reservation works. I expect a table if I had made a reservation. I don’t think I will be coming back.

There were times that the service was slow - in that it took too long in between two wines being tasted. There were also times when it was too quick in between glasses so some of my companions had to quickly gulp down what remained of the previous serving. This could have been due to how busy the day was, the speed of service wasn't too big of an issue but it was enough that my companions complained a little. One of my companions also wasn't able to hear any of the wine descriptions at all. The ambient noise drowned out our server's voice which he couldn't hear from the end of our table.
