Brought this for my husbands 50th, where we were treated like king and queen on a private tasting in the cellar. Tried amazing wines while grazing on a yummy meat and cheese platter. Lunch was delicious and more than enough to eat. Save room for dessert as they are too good to pass up. Was a special day for us both. The staff even went out of their way to help me hide his present and wrap it for me. (Set of Riedel glasses). He was not expecting it:-) Was nice walking off lunch through the vines before making a selection of their wines to take home in our chauffeured drive car. This experience would make a great gift and special day for any wine lover.

I purchased this experience for my husband and I for our wedding anniversary. The team at Contentious Character absolutely did not disappoint! Right from the start we were greeted by name and a glass of bubbles. Then lead down to our wine tasting where Jeremy run through a variety of different, beautiful wines. After selecting our 2 favourites, we were taken back up to the dining room for the most amazing food with a bottle of wine to match. We cannot thank the staff enough for our amazing experience and the delicious food. We cannot wait to come back again soon.

Denis was given this as a 70th birthday present, he decided to incorporate the experience with our 48th wedding anniversary, unfortunately Jeremy was in hospital, but Ben and Liam certainly covered well for him, they were both knowledgeable of their products, and extremely friendly and interactive,, from the moment we arrived, during a massive a massive down downpour, we were made welcome,,,, the wines were every much as good as ai had expected, even more with a few of the cellar-able reds,,, when we eventually went up for our meal, we were not disappointed, beef cheeks and the lamb were our choices, very well presented and scrumptious,,, nothing left on our plates,, good luck for the future, and we both can highly recommend this as a gift, or even a private adventure…
