A fun afternoon

As the last stop on our self guided wine tour, we were pretty tipsy by the time we reached nockies palette for our painting session which made it even more fun! It’s such a lovely garden and the staff are super friendly. I thought it would be good to have some inspo available for people to paint if they were short on an idea, or I would suggest thinking about what you would like to paint before hand to make the most of the experience as you are given free reign of the paints and canvas. Was great to be able to jump on the bus with our paintings and not have to worry about the clean up too!

Dear Paul, So glad to know you've had a good time in our cellar door :-) And thank you for your very insightful suggestions! We are going to have an in-house art instructor soon (hopefully in late Sept) and I'm sure next time you visit you will find interesting ideas provided by us :-) Stay well and safe. See you again soon! Regards, Nockie's Palette Team

Such a perfect rainy day activity

I went in a rather gloomy rainy and it was the best activity I could think of! Had a big glass of Chardonnay and enjoyed a peaceful and arty time:) Very friendly staff and cosy atmosphere! Highly recommended to any wine and/or art lover!
