11 WINE LIFE

delicious - - LOCAVORE. -

Ade­laide is a town full of wine-lovers, and the Tast­ing Room at East End Cel­lars (25 Var­don Ave, eas­t­end­cel­lars.com.au) is where they con­gre­gate. Op­er­at­ing as both a bot­tle shop and wine bar, this smart, buzzy es­tab­lish­ment fea­tures lesser-known mak­ers along­side renowned pro­duc­ers (Pen­folds, Wen­douree and the like). Owner Michael An­drewartha es­ti­mates that, in any given year, there are some 3000 dif­fer­ent la­bels on the shelves from “all corners of the globe”. Choose from the by-the-glass list, opt for a wine-flight from the win­ery of the week, or, for a cork­age fee ($15), pick a bot­tle from the cel­lar shelves to en­joy at one of the tables. Team it with a se­lec­tion of cured meats and cheeses – ar­guably the best plat­ters in the city cen­tre.
