NSW R&CA Awards: ‘Small Bar’ Winner, Bannisters Mollymook

James Halliday awarded Cupitt’s Winery, Ulladulla with 5 stars

(Sir) James wrote: “Cupitt’s Winery have been knocking on the door for a five-star rating for a number of years and blew it wide open for this edition of the Wine Companion. The tourist mecca of the southern NSW coast around Ulladulla is both blessing and bane. It’s not a natural region for high quality grapes, nor a magnet for wine tourists. The Cupitt family, led by winemaker Rosie, has walked around the problem by buying grapes from regions as far as the Yarra Valley. The result is that the quality of the wines and the modesty of the prices is as commendable as it is unusual”.

Cupitt’s new initiative: ‘Tour and Tasting’

.

East Coast Low: Destructive winds and surf caused a lot of damage along the coastline during the month of June. Mollymook was spared from the brunt of this low pressure system, and only incurred some minor damage as can be seen from the pic above as  huge waves washed over the break wall depositing seaweed, sand and water onto the corner of Golf Road and Ocean Street Mollymook and the adjacent footpath and lawn. The steps down onto the beach were dislodged and a portion of the fence in front of the surf club demolished. For more info and images, click on this link: East Coast Low

Cupitt’s new ‘Tour and Tasting’ initiative: Ulladulla’s award winning Cupitt’s winery has created an excellent tourist initiative: It is a guided tour of the vineyard, wine cellar, new craft brewery, the fromagerie to see their new cheese making facility and then finishing with wine tasting. Cost $20 per person. I went on the first tour and it was magnificent. For more info and images, click on this link: Cupitt’s tour and tasting experience

St Isidore Restaurant, awarded a ‘Star’

St Isidore’s restaurant in rural Milton NSW was one of five NSW Regional restaurants to be awarded a star in the recent Gourmet Traveller, 2016 Australian Restaurant Guide .

The restaurant is owned and operated by Jo and Alex Delly. Tasters for the magazine snuck into the Milton restaurant back in April to sample the food without the knowledge of the owners. Their dedication to exploring the best local produce certainly impressed the judges.

Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide.

The SMH ‘Good Food’ Guide awarded St Isidore’s restaurant a ‘Hat’ the following week for their exceptional foods using local produce.

‘Time Out’ Weekend Planner article:

The recent ‘Time Out’ planner wrote: A nice option for lunch is St Isidore just outside Milton. Again, this place is all about locality, with ingredients grown in their stunning gardens (take a wander through after your meal). Heat yourself up from the inside out with the crisp, melting confit duck leg. And the warm chocolate tart with roasted peanut ice cream will have you moving down here in a shot, it’s that amazing.

Ulladulla’s Blessing of the Fleet.

The Ulladulla’s Blessing of the Fleet was held on Easter Sunday April 5 in glorious weather and with an attendence in the 1000’s. The ‘Blessing’ traces its origins back to practices in Italian fishing villages whereby Priests were called upon to ‘bless’ the fishing fleet. In Ulladulla this tradition is continued each year on Easter Sunday. The Blessing is preceded by a huge street parade in the morning whilst the previous night saw the crowning of Hannah Wyatt as the 2015 ‘Blessing of the Fleet’ Princess at the Civic Centre.
