A must place to dine. A first class restaurant with great food, wonderful service, and a wonderful Mountain atmosphere. Tucked away from the main hub of town but worth finding it.

They have two good Sauvignon Blanc. Both are from Marborough. My favorite is the Craggy Range. Their house Sauvignon Blanc is not from New Zealand. It's either from Chile or S. Africa. It is not good.
Is there a dessert menu for dinner?
