Mt. Gambier's wine gem, The Barn Steakhouse, gets better with age. This year it celebrates 30 years of out-performing many a city restaurant in the wine stakes, with a superlative wine list that manages to put the wines of Mt. Gambier and nearby Coonawarra on equal footing with those of the rest of Australia and the world. Comprehensive across all categories, it is hard to fault whether it's a scintillating selection of half bottles, Australian rieslings, French chardonnays or Italian reds. And do spare time for a peek at the dessert wines and fortifieds. You will be well rewarded.
