Dining on the Deck

Alfresco dining High Country style

You're loving Summer - the warm weather, the sights and scents of the bush in full flower, it's your time of year!

If you like to take in the full effect of the High Country in Summer, you'll be opting to dine outside, so here's a little preview of some High Country favourites with fantastic outdoor dining.

Food always tastes better with good company....and with a stunning High Country view

Top spots to dine on the deck

St Leonards Vineyard Café offers fresh, seasonal & simple dishes, to be enjoyed in one of the most beautiful and secluded locations in the High Country. Find a spot under the ancient gums trees, overlooking the Murray River and estate vineyard, while the kids cartwheel and wheelbarrow to their hearts content. Make sure to check their opening days and times.

Here's a way to impress your significant other. Score a couple of the super comfy (and popular) bean bags on the grass at Brown Brothers, grab a bottle of prosecco and the charcuterie board or Milawa Cheese board - job done. Just peeling yourself out of these delightful clouds of comfort will be the most strenuous part of the day.

 

Pull up a pew on the Hop Terrace at Bright Brewery, overlooking the beautiful Ovens River. Throw in some tasty craft brews and delicious local fare... a little slice of heaven right here in the High Country.

The King Valley triple treat - unbelievable views, award-winning wine and superb Italian cuisine. Driving through the stone gates of Chrismont, you already know you're in for something special. The elegant cellar door and restaurant sits comfortably among the green rolling vines and beautiful vistas. Those views combined with a contemporary Italian menu are what dreams are made of.
