wine tasting was a lot of fun, feel that a little cheese board should be on offer to go with it

Bendooley's is always wodnerful.

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!

Very nice staff and location. Wines were very tasty.

We did not have food, I am not sure why this is a compulsory question for the survey.

Had a good experience here, didn't get to try the food so I can't rate it.
Shout out to Alana who did our tasting, she was very informative and generous with our first experience.
Thanks again.

I arrived at 1:50pm and had booked a reservation at 2pm prior to coming. 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.

Overall the experience was very good. 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.

Nice venue but they were very busy on the day so took a while to be served and then eventually seated. A number of tables were wine tasting so the lady looking after the pouring of wines took a while to make her way around. Nice cheese board though!

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!
