The restaurant has a very small menu, mainly sandwiches so we opted for the Cheese Board. Sitting under the oaks in the shade was divine and we thoroughly enjoyed the various local cheeses with nuts/kiwi fruit/grenadillas/preserves and crispy bread. The wine tasting is good value for 5 tastings and this can be enjoyed with your meal. For the non-wine drinkers like myself, be warned - there is no beer!!
Whilst the times are advertised as 10.00 - 16.00 on Sundays, the Wine Tasting & Restaurant was closed at approx. 13.00 just after we finished eating so anybody arriving later would have been very disappointed. Maybe they were just closing the doors to keep the heat out? It would be best to phone them first just to check whether they are open (021 873 6911)
Grand Dédale Country House is situated in the grounds of the wine estate and is, supposedly, Wellington's most exclusive privately-owned Country House, catering for approx 12 guests. Prices tags are high so check before booking.
It looks gorgeous and surely spoils and pampers guests!
