Winery restaurant for Waimate

19:17, Jan 08 2014

Point Bush Estate Vineyard and Winery at Waimate is aiming to open an 80 to 90-seat restaurant.

It will be suitable for functions, will be "not quite silver service" but serving fusion-style Asian and European dishes, winemaker Gary Dennison said.

"Waimate doesn't really have a restaurant. It has cafes and pubs but this raises the bar a little bit."

The restaurant is expected to open in June or July. The vineyard is situated beneath the white horse monument and has "a nice view out to sea".
