Josef Chromy Cellar Door Cafe
Overlooking the lakeside vineyard, this is the perfect setting for a glass of bubbly and gourmet platter of antipasto, cheeses and fruit for two. If you settle in for a long lunch, their innovative tasting plate matches four smaller-than-usual portions to the vineyard’s own wines. Expect a riesling with your east coast oysters and a chardonnay with the truffle-infused brie drizzled in quince sauce. If you’d prefer traditional three-course dining, save room for the ‘tant pour tant’ – a trio of delectable chocolate, orange and lemon puddings accompanied by a fruity botrytis riesling. They offer Saturday night dinners and summertime Friday pizza and barbecue nights, but check with the cafe before heading out.
