“Nestled amongst many of the region's best cellar doors along the famous 'Golden Mile', The Vines is a destination in its self. Great for brunch or lunch, the cafe has really good cabinet or menu options. You can also visit Whitehaven Wines Cellar Door, sample Gourmet Collection liquers, have a beer tasting at Golden Mile Brewing, see the locally grown wool products from Mihi Merino, visit Pru and Co's up-cycled furniture shop, the quilter barn and more. Locals and tourists alike love it here!”
