Dunstone Bistro Gets a Makeover

Our beloved bistro, The Stone Kitchen, is set to go have a facelift and will be closing down for renovations in the month of August. Last year, we had the good fortune of purchasing our neighbouring farm and as a result, we are relocating the Dunstone Winery, which currently shares building space with the Bistro, to an elegantly refurbished barn just a stone’s throw away.  What does this extra space mean for The Stone Kitchen?

Our renovation plans include:

  • Increasing the size of our indoor restaurant space to create a large dining area that spills out into the courtyard and garden via bi-folding glass doors, providing ample natural light.

  • Building a closed-off, inside soft-play zone for young children so that parents can relax on rainy days, whilst the kids have fun in the safety of the restaurant without disturbing other patrons.

For updates on our renovation project, make sure you are following our social pages. And if you are a local visitor, please pay us a visit before the end of July to sample our new winter menu!

Dunstone Winery

We chatted with our wine maker – Neil Marais – to get an insight into what he loves about working at Dunstone and what makes our wines and the winery so unique.

Neil Marais

Neil has been with us for past 6 years, and has since helped establish Dunstone as an award winning winery. Growing up in a Roberston, Neil’s family were involved the restaurant and hospitality industry. It was through their family run restaurant that Neil was introduced to wine and, after exploring the wine making process, Neil realised he had found his passion.

“I love being a part of Dunstone and growing this boutique winery. Using traditional wine making methods, I get to be apart of the entire process:  from planting and harvesting, to barrelling, bottling and labelling, which is all done on this estate.”

Our Wines

Dunstone offer single vineyard wines which are largely terroir driven.  These include Shiraz, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Shiraz Rose. We are very proud to say that we have won numerous international and local wine awards, consecutively for the past 4 years: These include John Platter and Michelangelo awards for our Shiraz and Merlot.

“I prefer red wine and reds just suit Wellington.” 

With our newly planted Granache and Mouvedre vines, a blended Dunstone Red is also in the foreseeable future, as soon as these vines are ready for harvest.

Harvest Time

Harvest is an exciting time of year for us, as the entire Dunstone family comes together to help out, with many guests getting involved and getting their hands (and feet) dirty too. It’s hard work but absolutely worth it and something everyone looks forward to. Our cellar is based within our bistro, allowing guests to watch or help with the harvesting process, whilst enjoying a marvellous lunch.

You are welcome to join us, during February and March, and be apart of the harvest festivities.
