Tucked away in the gorgeous seaside town of Robe is a gem of a restaurant called Gather Food and Wine. Operating in an old cottage that used to be a bookstore, the restaurant is as cute as a button and offers a feast for the senses with a menu to die for.
The Coonawarra wine region is well known for some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the country. It is a unique and compact wine region but packs a punch in its offering, and the talent of its Winemaker’s. One of these Winemaker’s is Tim Bailey from Bailey Wine Co. In the last few years Tim and his wife Lou started their own label after Tim’s nearly 21-year career as wine maker at Leconfield wines, where Tim still works today. We sat down to chat with Tim about his love for wine, the industry, and the passion for putting grapes into a bottle.
Having his own wine label has been a dream for a while, and Tim knew it was the right time to launch his own boutique wines; it was now or never to get his product on the market and to the consumers. Tim says, “It’s very different game launching your own label without the big marketing budgets that large wine companies have, but there is a lot of reward in seeing your own product on the market”.
“Dining out is about breaking bread at the table, enjoying some wine, and should be somewhere you can escape for a couple of hours,” George says. When you think exceptional customer service in the Adelaide dining scene, one of the leaders in the industry is without a doubt Georges on Waymouth. This Adelaide institution has been running for 15 years and is the true meaning of the word customer service. We sat down with George Kasimatis, the man at the helm of this restaurant to delve into his passion and love of the industry, and to learn a little bit about his passion for Greek wine too.
