This place is amazing! Not only do they have some fantastic wines - which seem to win a fair few awards... They cook all the food for the restaurant in converted Wine Barrel Smokers. The food tastes a little smokey, but not overpowering - and it is presented on platters made from wine barrel staves. Its great! Affordable too - $39pp for the tasting plate with matching wines, and they do not have a surcharge on public holidays. Best to book - we showed up and had to wait 15mins for a table, but the garden was a nice place to wait.
