“Makers of fine Central Otago Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc & Pinot Gris.”
There is magic in drinking a wine where it is made. As an awareness of place and seasonality contributes to our wine drinking pleasure, so it is with food. Carrick winery incorporates a cellar door and restaurant that overlooks the spectacular Bannockburn Inlet. It is open daily for lunches and occasionally in the evening for special functions and by arrangement.
Restaurant menus are created around fresh seasonal local produce, and they are fortunate to have access to some of New Zealand's best game; exceptional fish and shell fish from the cold water southern seas; summer fruit, and local organic vegetables. The Carrick chef uses these ingredients to make simple, healthy but sophisticated food, that, when matched with Carrick wines, provide a unique and authentic dining experience. For a more simple meal try their platters or treat yourself to a special lunchtime dining experience, selecting small and large platters from the menu, spending the afternoon, eating, looking at the view and sharing a bottle of wine with friends.
If you wish to taste Carrick wines, the knowledgeable staff will guide you. A recent innovation for Carrick has been the planting of a large summer vegetable garden in the vines adjacent to the restaurant, including borlotti beans, mange tout, zucchini flowers and fantastic new potatoes. They also have free range hens, who live at the bottom of the vineyard and provide fresh free range eggs to the kitchen.
