Cupitt’s Winery and Rick Stein Restaurant News
Cupitt’s Winery wins a ‘2019 Gourmet Traveller’s Star Cellar Door Award’. They wrote: “This is an amazing operation, a vineyard, winery, cellar door, restaurant, brewery and fromagerie – Cupitt’s has the lot, all in one neat and very stylish package. Rosie Cupitt is the driving force but her husband and their children are very much part of the success.
Originally from Bowral, Rosie Cupitt is a trained horticulturalist who re-skilled with a CSU oenology course before establishing this minuscule vineyard near Milton. Located in an old sandstone creamery dating back to 1851, the Cupitt cellar door is refreshingly unpretentious.
The adjacent Cupitt’s Kitchen has been built in sympathy with the winery in the cool underground cellar below. Enjoy a ploughman’s platter of olives, dips and breads at the cellar door or a fresh, produce driven meal at the restaurant. Live music on Sundays and weekend pizzas add to the child friendly nature of this exceptional enterprise”. PETER BOURNE

Carlo’s Italian Ristorante, Bar & Seafood
Carlo’s Italian Ristorante Bar & Seafood: Same quality food and service just a name change. Carlo established his own new restaurant a couple years and called it Tony’s Italian Ristorante on the understanding that his dad would be retiring and closing the older Tony’s restaurant next door. Carlo explained that “Dad had a change of mind and decided to continue operating. So we had two Tony’s restaurants side by side”. To eliminate the confusion for diners, Carlo recently changed the name of his restaurant to Carlo’s. He continues to get rave reviews from the Mollymook Beach Waterfront guests. He recently began posting pics of his sought after meals on Instagram.
