The Restaurant

Surrounded by premium vineyards at the western edge of the Barossa Valley, The Louise luxury lodge's award-winning restaurant 'Appellation' takes full advantage of a panoramic valley view across the stunning Barossa ranges. Spectacular sunsets make the perfect partner for a pre-dinner cocktail on the Appellation terrace before taking your seat in the dining room and selecting from 16 seasonal dishes to create your own 4-course menu experience.

The Cuisine

With a passion for fresh, local ingredients, the Appellation kitchen team are guided by the seasonal Barossa rhythms, just as our famous winemaking neighbours are. We harvest from the kitchen garden, bake our own bread, butcher and cure our own meats with a 'nose to tail' ethos. Our Appellation menu varies nightly in order to take full advantage of seasonal bounty and our extensive network of local growers and suppliers.

The Wines

With over 500 listings, Appellation's award-winning wine cellar presents a diverse selection of iconic Barossa wines representing established masters, emerging talent and boutique artisans, complimented by a strategic scattering of inspirational international bottles and alternative Australian specialties.

Adjacent to Appellation is casual dining nook 'Bar Louise' where sleepy palates can relax after a full day's tasting and embrace the simple pleasure of a perfectly prepared local cheese platter or 'Australia's Best Club Sandwich'... The perfectly humble compliment for Appellation's complete culinary journey alternative.
