FINO, SEPPELTSFIELD

Lunch. There are winery restaurants where you feel very little connection with the product. But at the other end of the scale is Fino, at Seppeltsfield, South Australia, the historic Barossa home of sherries and fortifieds. If there is any other restaurant that brings together that sense of place and history, with such appropriate local food and warm service, I’d like to know. David Swain’s honest, uncomplicated yet pure food and Sharon Romeo’s sparkling service make for a rare package.
