Lunch Thu-Mon noon-2.30pm
Coriole winery's picturesque courtyard garden setting creates an idyllic taste of la dolce vita at lunchtime. Farmhouse platters had been a staple for cellar door visitors, but chef Tom Reid now presents a dozen dishes designed for sharing. Each captures vitality and freshness in seasonal ingredients, many elements coming from the estate gardens and nearby farms, alongside Coriole's own oils, olives and cheeses. Duck ham teamed with grilled peaches, basil and 12-year-old sweet vinegar is a simple yet seductive match. Slices of buffalo mozzarella are layered with heirloom tomatoes for a sprightly "lasagne". For something richer, roasted pork loin and boudin noir are complemented by shavings of Granny Smith apple and crunchy caulifower florets. The food-friendly wine offerings include Mediterranean grape varieties, as well as older vintages and internationals. It's all so tempting that many guests opt for the $59 Feed Me option.
