We had a light lunch- cheese board and meat board - both delicious! Served with an amazing local red - a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. We'll be back!

Illawarra what an amazing culinary experience at Crooked River Winery! Every dish was extremely generous in servings, intentive to detail using local & Australian sourced produce. The Tasmanian truffle risotto was truly an amazing delight. Highly recommend experiencing this beautiful venue great value for money & certainly not overly pretension if anything it had a sophisticated ambience with a south coast charm.
