Lunch Fri-Sun 11am-6pm
A tiny wine-tasting shed tucked amid Lenswood's steep vineyard slopes has been radically transformed into an alluring dining location. Sharon Pearson and Garry Sweeney have refurbished their winery cellar door with recycled timbers and added spacious table settings, attractive art and glass windows overlooking their picturesque vines. Diners can also settle outside to enjoy leisurely lunches on the deck. Chef Matt Fitton makes bold statements on the plate, with cubes of quail and beetroot, say, folded with plum, witlof and red tea vinegar. An ingenious textural marriage of octopus with pinot grapes, lentils, cured pork and anchovy emulsion is braver still. His plates are designed to match the winery's cool-climate offerings, with luscious slow-cooked duck egg and asparagus smartly paired to its S&G chardonnay. Finish with an extravagant red liquorice ice-cream and chocolate mousse, or a selection of local cheeses and fruits.
