Situated in the Penola district at Coonawarra. Approx 1 hour drive north of Mount Gambier. DETAILS
The picturesque setting is the heart of wine country, where vineyards sweep across rolling plains, sunsets animate velvet skies, and the scent of aged-old oak sweetens passing breezes. The restaurant features floor to ceiling windows that ensure uninterrupted views over the Hollick Neilson's Block vineyard and beyond to the broader Coonawarra region. Diners also enjoy views into the barrel store, with its local limestone and red gum fit-out, where they may catch a glimpse of the winemaker plying his craft.FOOD & BEVERAGE
The Upstairs team present modern Australian cuisine that emphasises the quality of the local produce. Daily specials featuring seasonal goods augment the primary menu, which features pressed baked beetroot with goat curd, vincotto and fresh herb salad for entrée as well as an open omelette of free range local eggs, leek, mint and cheddar with roast pumpkin, quinoa, and spinach salad. A main course of rare roasted local venison with creamy horseradish mash, beetroot, green beans and green peppercorn jus is a popular choice. Dessert is not to be missed with the likes of warm pear and almond tart with poached pear, earl grey caramel and house made butterscotch ice-cream. There is also a divine selection of cheeses from a creamy meredith blue to the lusciously sweet and buttery ducs de champagne. The innovative menu is complemented by an extensive wine list featuring Hollick wines and an eclectic selection of local and imported drops. FUNCTIONS
