Earlier this year, Cake Wines' Redfern cellar door underwent a bit of a makeover. The space had a rejig, it received a fresh lick of paint and it reopened with a sparkly new full-functioning kitchen. Now, that it has settled into its new groove, it's making the most of its expanded kitchen and hosting a series of degustation lunches every Saturday and Sunday throughout October.
Wine is still front and centre at this inner-city cellar door, and it's front and centre at the lunches, too. Here, the price of you lunch — a very reasonable $55 — includes bottomless Cake Wines pinot noir. Yep, you have two hours to drink your way through as much Adelaide Hills plonk as you wish.
To pair with all that vino, you'll also be served up five tasty courses — starting with a slab of Brickfields sourdough and ending with your choice of pizza: margarita, tartufo, diavola or carciofi. In between, you'll come across roasted carrots with whipped goat's curd, beef tartare on tahini and snapper ceviche with kiwi fruit.
Stick around after lunch to listen to live jazz as part of the cellar door's weekly End Notes gig.
