Grandeur has returned to this historic Barossa winery, its refurbished bluestone cellars attracting major visitor activity, with Fino at its core. The demands of multiple dining operations forced the proprietors to close their original Willunga restaurant, but the same sharp regional food philosophy lives on here with renewed vigour. Vibrancy is captured in a robust bacon broth with chicken, zucchini flowers and barley, and in roasted pork neck with toasted buckwheat and Savoy cabbage. Simplicity sings in a plate of charred zucchini, eggplant, chickpeas, salted ricotta, and buttermilk flatbread. Some Willunga signatures remain, including a sublime crema Catalana with a fine toffee crust. It all sits comfortably with an eclectic wine list that shines a light on Seppeltsfield's fortified offerings. Service is informed and fluid, whether at outdoor tables, in the vast former bottling hall, or in alcoves fashioned from slate fermentation tanks.
