The story of a chicken, and a disappearing goat.


Why did the Chicken cross the road? Well, we’re sure it was chasing one of our Cheeky goats, the namesakes of our delicious Pinot Gris, who love to get out and about and see what this amazing place is all about.

We can’t be mad at them when they try and experience all that this place has to offer, as we love nothing more than to do it ourselves.

Now we can assure you that no chickens were harmed in the great escape above, however, it does get us thinking of how delicious roast chicken is when it finds its way to our table.

And with that in mind, we wanted to share with you one of our special recipes which is the perfect pair for the Cheeky Goat Pinot Gris, but be warned, the Cheeky Goat might just disappear before your eyes too.
