Great location for wine tasting. Excellent wines.
Please not when you buy wines you're still charged for the tasting which is $10 each so already very expensive and the wines aren't the cheapest.
Great service with friendly staff.
Very busy and no social distancing considering covid-19.

The wine tasting at Bendooley was excellent, with great quality wine in a superb location and setting. The place was a little bit busy, but it seems the norm as we came back the next day. The bookshop/wine combination is perfect!

This wine tasting was outstanding - the service was incredible, we loved hearing about the different wines and the waiters were so happy to talk about the wines and share their knowledge and answer questions. The wines themselves were delicious - the generous servings were appreciated! The setting and atmosphere was absolutely beautiful. could not fault this experience at all, I am already wanting to go back!

For a wine tasting it was a little fast. 12 tastings in 1 hour?

There seemed to be a little confusion when we arrived. We were greeted and left standing by two staff members.

There seemed to be a lot of staff but I’m not sure what they were all doing.

Lovely wines and perhaps we would like to return and try again.

What a surprise. We were not expecting what we found or to stay so long. Beautiful food. Lunch in the sun outside, great service. Lovely surroundings (including a book shop with loads of interesting things to look at) plus to top it off we had a great tasting experience sampling 12 lovely wines. A must visit location for one or all of the above reasons. We will be bringing family and friends back here soon.

Deb was absolutely lovely. We were so happy with our experience with wine tasting yesterday. Very professional & engaging. The wines were delicious! We didn’t make our lunch reservation as we were still so full from breakfast so we’re looking forward to returning sometime soon.

We had called up and attempted to get in for lunch but unfortunately it was booked out. We decided to visit Bendooley anyway to do the wine tasting and we were so glad we did. This was such a lovely experience! The service was phenomenal and the ladies serving us were so informative and passionate about the wine (amazing faces of the brand). The wines were fabulous and we even took 6 home!

We ended up having limited time to wine taste as lunch took longer. We informed the lady. She did well to keep up with our time constraint but made Comments that came across very rude. “This wouldn’t happen if it was a Saturday.” We asked a question she replied “you didn’t let me do my talk. We were made to feel like we were a nuisance. Despite spending $200 in the book store. Spending money with lunch and ordering wine and all of us purchasing wine. To take home.

A group of five thoroughly enjoyed our wine tasting at Bendooley Estate. We tasted 12 wines with a lovely mix of whites, reds, a dessert wine and a bubbly. It was a relaxed and non rushed experience in the delightful surroundings of The Stables. Beautiful views and friendly staff. Highly recommend it. The only downside was that we was no food to purchase. A cheese platter would have added to the experience.
