It’s impossible not to love Carrick Winery. Obviously, the wine is great, but also the space and the food and the ethos of keeping things local. Chef Gwen was named Top Chef at the 2021 Eat Taste Central festival and is committed to providing seasonal dishes that incorporate homemade, homegrown, locally sourced produce and game. Herbs, veggies and edible flowers from the kitchen garden on-site, eggs from the vineyard chickens, olive oil made from Carrick’s own olives all make an appearance. And the views! Looking out over the Bannockburn inlet of Lake Dunstan, Mt Difficulty and the Pisa mountain range will feed your soul, while the crew at Carrick feed your stomach.
