The Drayton’s have been producing wine for over 150 years, and are one of a few wineries that are still family-owned. The cellar door is a popular stop on tasting itineraries so always expect to hustle for a place at the tasting bar. On the other hand, if wine tasting is not on the agenda, The Log Press Cafe, right next door (you’ll walk through it on the way to the bar), is a pleasant functional cafe to grab a bite to eat or hang around for a longer lunch. Scones are listed on the menu and can be ordered by numbers rather than as a set. They are homemade and fairly fresh even mid-afternoon. On first sight, the scone looks anaemic and it doesn’t help that it’s dissected (not a great presentation). The jam is sickly sweet and nothing remarkable, but the fresh cream is thickly whipped and makes up for the mediocre jam. It’s light and bright and a pleasant place to be when in chilly weather. There are a few tables outside if you want to soak up some vitamin D.
Tea: A standard range of tea bags served in a small teapot.
Overall: A handy location in the same building as the cellar door.
