We were joined by James, Jo and baby Spencer over the weekend, who stopped off to visit on their way back from Yass. We had some stunning winter weather (cold in the morning but sunny during the day) and so made the most of exploring what Orange had to offer.
Once baby Spencer was properly rested we loaded the car with all the baby gear (amazing how much is required!) and headed off to Racine restaurant. We had given the wait staff the heads up that we were bringing a baby and the whole team were so helpful and accommodating from the moment we arrived.
We were given a nice big table in the corner with plenty of space for the high chair and Spencer's toys. The menu was set up for diners to enjoy 2 courses for $60 or 3 courses for $70. The menu includes produce that is totally locally sourced and the wine list was well balanced with plenty of good local drops.
Word of Mouth Pinot Grigio.
We decided to round off the afternoon with a visit to the De Salis Wines cellar door, located at over 1000 metres above sea level on Mount Lofty Rd. The winery dogs Rex and Tanqueray welcomed us to the newly opened cellar door and lead us to their affable owner and wine maker Charlie Svenson.
