Great products. Definitely enjoyed the honey red wine, not too sickly. The tastings, however, are very expensive at $10 for what it is and you need to get two bottles to get it back. It would be way more worth it if you got refunded for a single bottle or lowered the tasting price. I would also like to have tasted the honey mead beer, which wasn't on offer for tasting. The lady at the counter was lovely and extremely passionate.

Excellent mead and honey wine. Friendly service. Great tasting honey. Also the the sticky pork belly is fantastic. Highly recommend to check this place out if you’re In Margaret River.

Cutest shop in the entire region!! Lovely products, a great information corner with lots of instructional material about bees which our kids loved. We also loved the little lake with the bridge and playground outside. The honey is delicious of course, and their selection of products is divine. 100% recommend
