Words From Friends

Yes, but what do our customers think about us…?


Dear friends at Somerled, Many thanks for the occasion last Sunday. I thoroughly enjoyed trying the wines comparatively and the nibbles and snacks were very tasty, very generous and filling. I enjoyed the good-humoured and relaxed information that we received. Everyone is very friendly and happy. You all make your guests feel as welcome as family. – Chris Fryer


We can’t thank you enough for the special care and attention to detail that you took yesterday to ensure that Mike’s celebration was just perfect.  Knowing that you had everything under control meant that we could both be relaxed and enjoy the occasion with our guests.  Of course the excellent wines, the delicious food and Rob’s engaging commentary along with your flexibility all contributed to this very memorable day.  Please pass on our sincere appreciation to all involved.   – Linda Dumbleton


Thanks for the wonderful day on Saturday. The wine, food and the company were all superb. – Glen Sloan


Thought I would share a few photos from the Somerled wine tasting we undertook at our house, with close friends of ours. So the tasting was of the 2012,13 and 14 Shiraz…..and to make it a little more fun, we covered the bottles to ensure no one was influenced by the vintage, and mixed and remixed the order, so even I did not know which was which…….so in essence blind tastings…We paired the wines with appropriate cheese, and then the tasting began. Results…my partner Len loved wine 1 the best, however the remaining three of us, selected wine 2 as our favourite….when we did the big reveal…it was interesting to note, wine 1 was 2012, wine 2 was 2013 and wine 3 was 2014 (despite us mixing the order to ensure a level of mystery). We then went through the wine notes, which you provided at the time. Needless to say we all loved the wines and a great afternoon was had by all.– Johnathon Dickson


My brother is the biggest red wine snob… that’s why I buy his wine here! – Sheridan Priestly


Somerled is always my first stop in Hahndorf. I have been a member of their jockey club for several years now and always look forward to drinking their wines, which I do on a regular basis. Rob Moody, the winemaker, is unassuming and makes exceptional wines. I was going to pick a favourite but realised there are too many! The cellar door is a friendly and welcoming place, and I feel like part of the family – due more to the welcome I receive from the family and the staff, and not because I drink so much of their wine. I look forward to many more visits and my next packs of wine! – via Trip Advisor


This is to advise that the Thompson family are suitably impressed with both the wines and the service ( from all family and staff ) and shall continue to frequent and tell others of your establishment until we are dissatisfied for whatever reason. Please note the short version of the above is, ‘Somerled is the best’  – Andrew Thompson (AKA “Froggy”)


One of Hahndorf’s best venues when it comes to a relaxing drink or 2 with friends. Being local makes you realise how good we have it! – via Trip Advisor


I have been visiting this wonderful welcoming winery for many years. The wines are superb (Robs past experience with Penfolds shows!) the atmosphere is great, and the family feel of the winery is comforting. Friday nights are a great end of the week – colleges and friends get together and everybody is made welcome! Special events are amazing- the recent Vertical Shiraz tasting was delightful, educational and tasted fantastic! Come and experience the great times at Somerled. – via Trip Advisor

We came across this little gem on our walk back to our accommodation. Upon entering we were greeted warmly and found a very cosy place to sit next to the fire which was welcomed as it was very cold outside. We settled on a glass of Tempranillo each which was very enjoyable and also a small plate of Italian sausage and mini toasts. We also had a lovely chat with the winemaker Rob. The service was also wonderful. We shall be back the next time we visit Hahndorf. – via Trip Advisor
I was visiting family and we stopped in for an afternoon wine on a cold and rainy day. The atmosphere was fantastic and the service perfect. I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough – great food to match their delicious wines. I’ll be going back again and again! – via Trip Advisor
