The gelato we had was divine, it was doused in a caramel sauce, yummy! We had a pie in the cafe which was scrummy too. Pleasant environment to sit back and relax.

Vines was on our radar because of the Quilters Barn. We also found a little oasis of fine merino, fine wine, fine dining and some ice cream. Interesting local rugby connection.
