The Lane Vineyard

The Lane Vineyard

Worth a detour? Without question! If not for the picturesque setting, the food at The Lane Vineyard restaurant certainly makes any travel worthwhile. Nestled in the Adelaide Hills, The Lane Vineyard sits elevated, boasting views out over the vines to the rolling hills beyond. Sample The Lane Vineyard’s range of Block Series wines, which can be ordered by the glass to complement the seasonal menu. Sophisticated entrees like charred quail, chilli jam, daikon and spiced vinegar excite the tastebuds, ahead of mains like pork jowl, scallops, anise butter, shitake and ink pasta; or perhaps duck breast, blood plum, Ngeringa greens and bagna cauda. Be sure to leave room for The Lane Vineyard’s superb range of desserts, such as mango sorbet, sweetened goats cheese, oat biscuit and vanilla.
