We booked the Sauvignon glampers dome which comes with an outdoor bathtub. (Bring your own bath bubbles). It was our first time glamping and staying in a dome! it was magical. It truly was. There are a few domes but they are all spread out, so you have your privacy. The dome has a full ensuite. The walls are insulated and a heater is provided to keep you warm at night, no worries. You can soak up the view from the bathtub or from the comfy bed. You can also watch the stars from your bed or at the fire pit. There is no TV or wifi (although Swinging Gate Vineyard and Cellar Door has wifi). So you can switch off for the night! Oh, and the complimentary wine from the cellar door is a bonus!
We went to Swinging Gate Vineyards for a regular monthly degustation and rather then drive anywhere after indulging, we booked the Domescape. It was fabulous to just stagger back after a great night, and the dome was just lovely. Good sized spaces, the bathroom is quite large considering, and waking up and opening the drapes to the stunning view was just delightful. A great option.
Absolutely loved this place! Our host was very pleasant and helpful and quite happily provided a wine tasting prior to checking in. All of the check in instructions were emailed to us plus I rang ahead and pre ordered a platter for dinner. The platter was amazing! So much more than I expected. Nellie the dog came and joined us for dinner (I'm sure she could smell the food) and quite happily trotted off when we had finished. The dome was beautiful! Quality furnishings and fixtures with a very comfortable bed. Along with the included bottle of wine and extra platter, we were also provided with a breakfast voucher at a cafe in the local town. I loved everything about Swinging Gate winery and the dome. So happy that I found this place. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a romantic getaway.…
An anniversary surprise for my husband. It certainly didn’t disappoint! Doug and Corrie were wonderful hosts, and their dog Nellie was a delight. The wine tasting was fabulous with 24 varieties to sample, and Doug was very informative about the vineyard and wines. The massages were excellent and so relaxing, thank you Corrie! The Domes are beautifully appointed and we enjoyed our platter of local produce beside our fire pit as the sun went down. It was amazing to lie in the comfy bed and watch the stars and then the sunrise! Thoroughly recommend it. A unique experience in our beautiful island state. Who needs to go overseas!
Four us booked two tents. We came for the Degustation experience @ Swinging Gate Winery, where the tents are situated. Just wonderful and comfortable. View, bed comfort, amenities.... all just superb! The tents are among the vines, with a gravel track to them and a carpark near each tent. 3 minute walk from the Winery and rustic dining area.
