Eastview Estate

in Armidale

The sleepy hamlet of Kentucky, 40km southwest of Armidale, is home to this quirky winery, distillery and restaurant. The gins are particularly well regarded, and go down well with a dollop of jazz and blues in the steampunk-themed 'speakeasy'. Lunches –perhaps blackened salmon salad or a ploughman's platter groaning with house-made charcuterie and preserves (mains $27 to $30) – are available on weekends.
