4.5 Star Rated Winery – Halliday
The boutique winery up on the hill in the peaceful surrounds of Mt Anakie, but make no mistake this winery is a pressing (pardon the pun) operation. 17 hectares under vine and having a credible name for producing varietals such as Pinot Noir, Cabernet, Chardonnay, Merlot and Marsanne to name but a few.
Del Rios provides a great place to have lunch and keep in mind bookings are usually required as the seating is small and charming and this place does get busy on the weekends.
Using the sloping area to their advantage, the team here can manage the vines and yield to ensure excellent quality fruit year in year out. With a ‘labour of love’ certainly being the catch phrase, most of what happens in the vineyard is all by hand. The continental climate and volcanic soils work hand in hand.
Wines start out at $20 and top out at $40 for the Shiraz.
The views and pleasant hospitality are well worth the visit and booking in for a long lunch will only be good for the soul.
