rich soils and pure rains of South Australia inspire
artisan growers to produce a bounty of premium,
fresh and often organic food and wines.

An excellent range of diverse Kangaroo Island and South Australian wines and beers has been hand selected to comprise the beverage menu. Rates include all dining and all beverages (cellarmasters list additional).
