CAFÉS & RESTAURANTS
- goldfish: We went here for lunch and ordered scallops. The Smelly Cheese Shop is just around the corner (see link below).
Blueberry Hill: I loved their 2014 Rose de Noir- a sparkling Pinot Noir with sweet strawberry flavors. Just beautiful.
Bimbadgen: One of the rather "touristy" Cellar Doors. Renowned for its classic bottle-aged Semillon, Chardonnay with full-flavors and intense Shiraz. I'd go for the Bimbadgen Sparkling Semillon.
McGuigan: with an award-winning Museum. Their shop has great gifts to take home!
Cockfighter's Ghost: visit this winery in a state-of-the-art architecturally designed building located in the historic "Post Office Vineyard" surrounded by the regions oldest Shiraz vines. I loved their 2010 Pinot Noir Chardonnay.
