Went to this winery with very high expectations based on all the great reviews here on TA. Maybe we got them on a bad day, I don't know.. but everything was just.. average.
The thinly sliced ribeye and the asparagus dish were probably the worst of all and the bruschetta wasn't exciting at all. There were no great flavours that stood out and everything was really lacking in salt. It amazes me how many chefs under-season their food!
After we got up, we saw a few people eating something that wasn't on the menu and were quite disappointed as it actually looked really good. Maybe that was on the 'Trust The Chef' deal. Either way, their menu changes daily so hopefully your experience will be better than ours!

We took the lot and trusted the Chef. A great choice. What a fantastic afternoon. We had lunch, numerous courses, great beverages. Warm, inviting, comfortable, conversation evoking, tempting, yum, sooooo worth it. Go for the lot and have "Trust the Chef" with wine. Perfect. Doesn't matter if you can't ski. This is great.

We visit Amisfield regularly, although it has to be said it's not a cheap meal so we save this for special occasions. Lovely way to spend an afternoon, especially when you Trust The Chef and a banquet of different and exciting dishes makes its way to you over an extended lunch period.
