A vineyard view in Autumn is hard to beat – especially when you team it with wine, authentic Italian cuisine, friends, family and an open fireplace in picturesque Macclesfield. 

The team at Longview Vineyard are again preparing their Italian-inspired long lunch menu for Mother’s Day, which has become a signature event at the family-owned and run vineyard. 

The shared lunch hosted in the gorgeous heritage barn overlooking the rolling hill-side Vineyard, will be prepared by Head Chef, Alastair Raymond and Cellar Door Chef Luca Guiotto, using fresh autumn produce, paired with some of Longview’s award-winning wines, infused with accents of Northern Italy.  

Passionate about their heritage, the Saturno family embrace the rituals of making fresh pasta sauces, curing meats and pickling vegetables, as well as sharing their culture with their customers. 

Some of the features of the four-course Long Lunch menu include Trotolle alla Zucca – a traditional Italian semolina pasta with pumpkin, sage and goat’s cheese, as well as a pasta dish to delight seafood lovers, comprising squid ink Campanelle, South Australian prawns, chilli and Pangrattato. 

With the Mother’s Day dining experience sold out in previous years, Event manager, Callie Smallwood said bookings were essential. 

“It’s such a relaxed afternoon of good food and good wine in the company of family,” she said. 

“The Vintage at Longview is now complete, and the Autumn colours out in the vineyards are beautiful.” 

At $90 per adult and $30 for kids, it’s a small price to pay for a quick afternoon trip to Italy! 

But if you can’t make it to Macclesfield, Mum doesn’t have to miss out. The team at Longview have put together some Luxury gift boxes, including a little bit of everything to make Mum’s day. 

For just $199 the special package includes a bottle of Nebbiolo Rosato – a light pink coloured Rose’ with a slight hue of orange, strawberry and musk aromas. Chocolate from Adelaide artisan chocolatier, Adixions, also features in the gift box, and Mum will have something to look forward to, when she books in to use her vouchers at Longview’s stunning on-site Day Spa. 

The Day Spa, which celebrated its first anniversary last month, offers a unique wellness experience in the stunning vineyard setting and complements the Vineyards 4.5 star accommodation, which comprises 12 king suites, a lovingly restored homestead for up to 10 guests, and a brand-new lodge, which sleeps 8.  

And just when you thought Longview Vineyard already offers the whole package, head to their page on Instagram for your chance to win a Luxury Gift Box for Mum.
