I have this one photo which sums up a night at The Winery some 6 years ago; it’s the sort of picture which says 1000 words.
I was a 21-year-old girl full of big dreams having just moved from Adelaide to Sydney. My younger sister Kim was over from Adelaide visiting, and I was taking her out, showing her the best Sydney had to offer.
Every event in my life seems to be surrounded by food. No matter how big or small the event – food is always a thought.
Restaurants are more than just great food for me; it’s about the memories created, the atmosphere, and most importantly the company.
Jinny Fleischman once said “A meal is the whole experience of getting together and sharing with friends. It is more than food”
The Winery is the sort of venue whose obviously believes this too.
This trendy part-restaurant, part-wine bar, and part-beer garden has an eclectic and relaxed vibe which turns every dining experience into a memory.
Last week I kicked-off the weekend early with a long Friday lunch at The Winery with Jessie and Wes.
If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram you’d know I am basically in a relationship with cheese and wine… So obviously we ordered one of the Winery Boards.
The menu has a selection of three Winery boards ranging from a light-bodied board with soft cheeses and lighter meats to a full-bodied board with strong cheeses and flavoursome meats, with each board matched to a red or a white wine.
Obviously I choose the red… A smooth drop from Sons Of Eden in the Barossa Valley.
As we eased our way into the weekend, we stuck with the whole “sharing with friends” philosophy and ordered mains from the feasting menu – dishes designed to be shared with 4 or more people.
Everyone had all hands up for the duck cassoulet – a hearty meal perfect for a winter’s lunch with a few glasses of red.
We finished things off with more cheese, but not just any cheese – truffle cheese board. This dish is new to the menu and it has my name all over it.
