Wine craves food.
We’re passionate about our seasonal menu, and we’re passionate about our global wine list. Most of our wine list is available by the glass so that you can experience a variety of tastes for your palate. We’ll help you step outside your comfort zone and try varieties or styles that you may not have tried before. And we’ll recommend some great dishes to bring out the best flavours in the wines.
Most people think of ‘small plates’ or ‘tapas’ and think of three small bites of food. We’re all about an entrée sized plate where you can savour the food and still have more than a mouthful! Our menu is influenced by simple and honest cooking from around the world.
Why are we different? Because we care about the highest levels of food and wine service, and strive to give you a dining experience that you would not expect to find in a ‘rural’ environment. Our passionate and experienced team will encourage you to try food and wine that you may not have tried before, and feel like you are part of something special.

The Living Room is the largest venue on The Tasting Shed’s premises, seating up to 40 guests at any one time.
The rustic, country aesthetics have been intentionally preserved with the use of natural and recycled materials throughout. The furnishings are full of character and you’ll find that the interiors’ details evoke images of their own unique and varied histories.
