There’s no better place in Melbourne for a Tasmanian escape, so we’re headed back to Pure South in 2019. Serving up modern Australian food with a focus on Tasmanian and King Island produce is what they do best, so we’re not surprised to see so many amazing producers from the Apple Isle on this list.
The room will be separated into the four Wine Trails, featuring bites that complement the wines of that area. They’re all included in your ticket price, so your only job is to make sure you try them all!
