Feathertop Winery in Porepunkah is rebranding and relaunching its restaurant.
The winery’s restaurant which features a Tuscan style outdoor terrace overlooking Mount Buffalo, said it will revamp and rename Feathertop Alfresco Dining Restaurant as Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop – in a nod to the handcrafted stone work featured on the estate by owner and chief winemaker Kel Boynton.
Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop will relaunch on Friday 12th October.
For 10 years now Feathertop has been the pioneer of the “moveable restaurant” concept, offering the ultimate in outdoor fine dining experiences for locals and visitors to North East Victoria. The newly named Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop will continue to be set outside on the Stone Terrace on all good weather days, where guests can sit back and enjoy their lunch under the lush vine leaf canopy framed by antique timbers and mountain views. During the cooler months, the restaurant is set in the nostalgic warmth of the Barrel Room, where you can dine amongst towering wine barrels and still enjoy the misty mountain vistas.
Head Chef Simon Buckley and Sous Chef Robert Clarkson will continue to lead the culinary operations. They have created a new look menu for spring which can be enjoyed as a sharing style feast amongst friends if desired, perfect for the long summer days ahead. The menu will continue to feature dishes sourced from local Alpine Valleys produce and the estate kitchen garden and with a contemporary take on the classics.
In addition to the refreshed menu, the wine list will expand to include specialty cocktails including gin and tonic featuring Reed & Co’s Remedy Gin, apple cider by Wandiligong’s Alpine Cider, craft beer by Blizzard Brewing Company Dinner Plain and a rotating selection of wines from different wine regions,
“At Feathertop we stick to the principle of seasonal, local, Australian produce and we couldn’t be more thrilled to relaunch the restaurant with a new look menu that draws on Rob’s (ex Simones of Bright) Italian cooking background and my French trained techniques. Enjoying a leisurely lunch experience out on the Stone Terrace has created many special memories for our guests and wine club members over the years and together with our team we are excited about the opportunity to elevate these offerings on our menu.” said Simon.
Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop is open for lunch Friday to Sunday 12-3pm with extended trading days during school and public holidays. You can order off the menu a la carte style or for great value, try their two or three course specials matched to wines. Bookings are recommended and essential during peak times. Stone & Barrel @ Feathertop is also available for private functions and degustation experiences.
The Feathertop Providore, the winery’s relaxed, DIY grazing platter picnic option, is also available from the cellar door stocking a constantly changing range of artisan meats, cheeses, dips, fresh baguettes. Open during cellar door hours 11am-5pm Friday-Sunday.
