Dunstone Winter Special 2019

“The weather outside is frightful, but the wine is so delightful”   

Winter at Dunstone Country Estate is hardly frightful, but the Dunstone Winter Special is utterly delightful; in fact we think it is hard to beat! This is your chance: grab a few friends and head to Wellington for that much-needed ladies weekend, or treat your wife and kids to a family getaway that doesn’t break the bank. Better still, book one of our honeymoon cottages and unwind on a wine tasting safari for two in the Bovlei Valley, sampling the many full-bodied reds that Wellington wineries have on offer. Dunstone’s large onsite restaurant, The Stone Kitchen, has indoor and outdoor play areas for kids, so you can toss your car keys aside and spend quality time with your loved ones without ever leaving the estate! For those who can’t sit still, there are a host of activities that can be accessed right from our doorstep, such as hiking, trail running, cycling and wine tasting.
