Ask most people about the New South Wales Hunter Valley, and they’ll think of the central tourist district of Pokolbin. But travel just 15 minutes south via Oakey Creek Rd, and you’ll find Mount View.
The short trip is well worth it, because Mount View is one of the most gorgeous parts of the Hunter Valley Region. It has breathtaking views and some really distinctive wineries producing exceptional wines.
Carillion Wines, at the Tallavera Grove Vineyard on Mount View Road, is one such place. The Cellar Door and attached Bistro Molines just ooze French Provincial charm and the view across the vineyards is breathtaking. But…you really should visit for more than just the vista, because the wines are something special too.
The Grape & Grain has been built to showcase & promote Australian food, wine, spirits and fresh local produce by presenting an assortment of news, reviews, recipes, articles and interviews with winemakers, chefs, distillers, providores and farmers.
Beginning with my home regions of the New South Wales Central Coast and the Hunter Valley, and expanding across Australia, each week I’ll be presenting the very best Australian food, wine and spirits have to offer.
