Our new feature wines come from Rutherglen Estates. The Victorian winery is located in the easterly corner of the Murray River valley plains, 275 kilometres north-east of Melbourne via the Hume Freeway and just 10 kilometres from the Murray River. In the mid 1800s the Rutherglen region was one of the largest wine-grape growing areas in the southern hemisphere, exporting predominantly fortified wines to England and Europe. Rutherglen Estates’ winery has been in operation from 2001.
While wintry weather lingers, enjoy the Sangiovese – a juicy, elegant wine with earthy notes. On warmer spring days the well-rounded Pinot Grigio will make an excellent drop.
Instead of feature wines, this month we have a Beer of the Month: Coopers Session Ale. This is a pale ale from the esteemed Coopers Brewery in South Australia. It’s a summery drop – and given how warm this winter has been, that seems appropriate … Available for $6.50 a schooner.
Sometimes a glass of wine or a schooner of beer is not quite the ticket – which is where the cocktail comes in. Our list of cocktails includes the espresso martini (of course), the cosmopolitan, mojito, margarita and mai tai. You can see the full list here.
Our wine list is now available on the website – you can view our range of sparkling, white, red, rosé, dessert and fortified wines here. Our extensive selection includes prosecco and Champagne, plus a wide selection of chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, cab sauv, pinot noir and shiraz.
We’ve set up a reading corner near the fireplace – that is, there’s a heap of books on the mantelpiece, so if you have some time to kill and you’re looking for something to read, there’s a selection waiting for you. And we don’t mind at all if you take the book home.
We regularly host functions and events in our function room space and also in the beer garden (and sometimes both – depending on the size of the function!). If you’re organising a function for work, family or friends, you can reserve the function room at no extra charge. We also have a function menu.
