Friendly neighbours Chalk Hill Wines and Never Never Distilling Co. have made good use of their site, offering a pretty spectacular two-fold experience of wine and gin.
Now, the team behind McLaren Vale destination, Pizzateca, have joined the fray with Cucina di Strada.
The trio form the Chalk Hill Collective, where you can get your hands on small batch, hand crafted wines, rich and complex gins, and delectable pinsas (no, that’s not an erroneous spelling of pizza).
Cucina di Strada specialises in the Pinsa. A pizza derivative with a doughy, thick, fluffy base, topped with delicious ingredients and served on a paddle.
Alongside Pinsas, you will find the produce of Cucina di Strada’s English translation, street food. Mozzarella sticks, arancini, meatballs, panini, cakes, gelato, coffee, and charcuterie round off the menu that’s reminiscent of Italian street food.
The result of COVID-19 restrictions are a strictly booking only set up at Chalk Hill Collective, where you choose between 1.5 hour slots at either Never Never Distilling or Chalk Hill wines. You can order your Cucina di Strada bites from each location.
On the site, you will find the Never Never space on the left hand side and Chalk Hill on the right hand side. The deck out the back is the domain of all three businesses.
Regardless of these discrete spaces, the trio are connected in a familial way, with the teams having made options from all three businesses readily available for patrons.
The Chalk Hill Collective is described as an elevated experience, particularly in that it is a hub that delivers various, cultivated offerings.
Booking processes are a bit strict right now, but expect to soon devote an extended period of time at Chalk Hill Collective.
When restrictions (and weather) permit, the grounds will be a haven for picnics, so look forward to a space that promises a lazy day of indulgence.
You will find Chalk Hill Collective at 56 Field Street, McLaren Vale, SA.
