Mediterranean in Hunter Valley

If you need a solid feed to prep for an afternoon's wine tasting, this casual winery spot fits the bill. Food is designed for sharing, which is just as well, as anything larger than an starter will defeat one person. Upfront Mediterranean flavours dominate – cheeses, garlic, marinates – in a menu that covers wood-fired pizzas, enormous salads and whole-fish or roast-joint mains.

Service is fast and the place caters well for families.
