Element winery

We had a very good wine tour with Ian as our guide. It was a beautiful day enabling us to view the countryside at its best. Ian was very knowledgable and guided us through the various wine styles which we found extremely helpful. On a personal note, I found 4 wineries each with 4 wines to sample too much, but I am in my late 70's . The 4 young people we were with didn't seem fazed at all.

great to be able to get away after lock down. We went mid week and so our group was only 3 people (including ourselves) which was perfect allowing us to ask any questions and get to know everyone. Lovely wine, lovely people, lovely day.
