What a beautiful modern wine bar with a rustic feel that showcase the finest regional produce I’ve ever tasted. Was staying at the Mansion Hotel so decided to swing passed this newly renovated winery (after a fire few months ago). Small green area out front if you would like to have a picnic on a nice sunny day. Unfortunately the day we went it was slightly gloomy so we sat inside instead.
Service was lovely. Booked online. Very efficient. Menu items had a good selection.
CHARCUTERIE board served with cornichons, pickled shallots, chutney, horseradish & brioche crisps and we got the grilled chorizo and duck pate as extra. Everything tasted DELICIOUS! Hands down one of the best charcuterie we had. The duck liver pate was smooth and flavorsome and the chorizo was nicely grilled. The serving was pretty big so we decided to share a main and a side.
ROAST PORK with roasted artichoke and apple sauce – this was the special, free range pork. Unfortunately a bit too bland for me. I felt that the roast was slightly overcooked so it was slightly too dry and perhaps require anothee glazed as the apple sauce was not enough to eat with the pork.
POLENTA CHIPS with smoke tomato jam… MmmmM a great side. Jam was nice and sweet. I was expecting the chips to be crunchier but I didn’t mind the light and fluffiness of it though!
P.S Free wine tasting for Mansion Hotel guests I think… we didn’t have time to do it though =)
