The dining room at the home of St Hugo is a stunning renovated 1850’s ironstone building and the perfect place to experience our contemporary “wine centric cuisine”. A collaboration between Executive Chef Mark McNamara and St Hugo Chief Winemaker Dan Swincer all of our dishes are designed to complement the power and elegance of St Hugo wines.
WHEN TO VISIT
The Barossa Valley experiences four distinct seasons. Spring (September–November) promises mild days and cool nights, with the first buds appearing on the vines. In Summer (December–February), days are hot and dry, the vines are green and the grapes are ripening. Autumn (March–May) delivers warm weather, the excitement of vintage and the chance to taste ripe grapes early in the season, while Winter (June-August) is cooler and less crowded, with daytime temperatures averaging 14°C, dipping to 5°C overnight.
- Wines: Revered for its full-bodied Shiraz wines, the Barossa Valley is home to some of the oldest grapevines in the world, with examples dating back to the 1840s. The region’s warm continental climate produces red wines of profound depth and intensity. Along with the mainstay of Shiraz, other popular grape varieties include Grenache, Mataro (or Mourvedre), Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Semillon and Chardonnay.
