Patricia’s Table

Brown Brothers in Milawa is a go-to destination for its historic winery and cellar door, but its food offerings are no slouches, either. The Epicurious wine bar and its snack menu are worth a visit, but Patricia's Table restaurant, where mostly regional and always seasonal fare is prepared with aplomb by chef Douglas Elder, is the real pièce de résistance. Local zucchini picked in the morning morphs into a sweet-sour shiny caponata and a smoky purée, both offsetting a hearty serve of tender rolled goat and crunchy, nutty farro arancini. The zucchini flowers, meanwhile, are filled with sweet, soft pumpkin, then tempura-fried so they're crisp and light, with requisite zest and tang from whipped labne and house pickles. And the wine options? A cinch - each dish is matched to a variety or style, so an orange muscat blend pairs perfectly with the vanilla and gingerbread parfait, topped with crumbled honeycomb and refreshing pear gelato.
