A rustic cellar door with loads of history is one of the highlights of the day

Set in the Old Cranbrook Store is Gala Estate’s Cellar door which is like stepping back in time. The face of Gala is Ted Castle who lived there with his 10 brothers and sisters until his late 70’s. Now its a rustic, photographers paradise garnished with wine.
