Foxeys Hangout’s cellar door, housed in a smart wood and glass building overlooking the vineyard, also incorporates an excellent little eatery that offers a series of small dishes. These work equally well as a quick snack with a glass of wine or, ordered en masse, as a more substantial meal. Local ingredients feature prominently, like mushrooms wrapped in vine leaves, and there is usually excellent barbecued quail and spiced meatballs. A brief, well-selected range of cheeses, chosen to complement the winery’s output, seems as good a reason as any to linger longer.
