Coonawarra Wine, Australia
 
Food
The Coonawarra wine region offers visitors a delicious selection of fresh local produce and dining experiences. Start the day with a hearty breakfast of wagyu sausage, free range eggs, locally grown spinach and freshly ground coffee or pick up a pastry at the local bakery or French-style patisserie to savour whilst reading a newspaper from the shop nearby. For lunch you can stock up a picnic basket with cheese, wine and antipasto from the local store and relax on the lawn at one of the wineries or take in the vineyard views whilst savouring a long lunch at Upstairs at Hollick. In the evening select from an array of dining options from casual eateries, contemporary cuisine and some of South Australia's best regional dining experiences.

Here's a list of the cafes and restaurants and food outlets in the region that might just take your fancy. The Visitor Information Centre have updated menus and the latest news and will be pleased to help you with recommendations.
