Fino Seppeltsfield: Restaurant review

Under David Swain and Sharon Romeo's guidance, bolstered by that Barossa magic, Fino Seppeltsfield is entrenched in the South Australian culinary scene.

REVIEW

The drive to Fino gives a hint of what's to come. Sweeping streets lined by swaying palms. Old bluestone. Topiary and water features. You could call it glamorous if it wasn't so full of authentic country charm. Days spent exploring the cellar, the grounds, the artist studios. Or just find a spot on the sun-drenched terrace and wait for the joys of the area to be brought to you. Fino is entrenched in the South Australian culinary scene. The original in McLaren Vale swiftly become an institution – as has newest offshoot, Fino Vino in Adelaide's CBD. But it's in Seppeltsfield that it shines the brightest, under David Swain and Sharon Romeo's guidance, bolstered by that Barossa magic. If it's asparagus season, expect perfectly cooked asparagus. Oyster season? Expect perfect slurps of salt and sea. The wine list showcases the best of the region, with a few interstate varietals dotted throughout. Don't hold back.
