“Great Place for Food & Wine”
Review of Talunga Estate

Talunga Estate
Ranked #6 of 7 Restaurants in Gumeracha
Price range: USD 8 - USD 3,853
Description: Temporily open only on Saturday & Sunday for wine bottle takeaway 11-4pm. Talunga Estate is located on the Adelaide side of Gumeracha in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. The outlook boasts views over the surrounding hillsides and vineyards. Why sit in a café in a main street when you can visit us and enjoy the superb views overlooking the Adelaide hills and the gardens. A perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass or cup of your favourite aperitif with a share platter or pizza and scrumptious home made desserts. The glory vines cover an outdoor area suited to the fine days, an enclosed atrium for those days when its pleasant to sit in a warmer area and for those cold days an open fire and heated dining room or extremely hot days an air-conditioned dining room. Fully licensed, family run and owned with friendly staff and great award winning food makes this a fantastic place for a birthday or any other function. Fully liquor Licensed for up to 105 allows for the larger functions/weddings.

Delightful. We had no idea what Talunga Estate was going to be like. We were off to visit the National Motor Museum in Birdwood and thought we'd like to find somewhere nice for lunch afterwards. We figured a local winery might be a good option so did a quick web search. Talunga came up and the menu looked good. As we arrived at Talunga, Donna opened the door to greet us and took us through to enjoy some wine tasting while we waited for our lunch to be prepared. The sparkling Blanc de Blanc is particularly good and we also enjoyed the Semillon/Chardonnay and the Sangiovese Rose. We hadn't planned to purchase any wine but knew we needed some these for the cellar :) For lunch we had a large Antipasto Platter - it included local meats, cheeses, sundried tomatoes and Milano olives. The olives were amazing!!! They were so big I was cutting slices from them with my knife and fork. Donna looked after us and other guests brilliantly. We visited on a week day and didn't need to book but they were pretty much fully booked across the weekend so if you're planning a visit, it may be worth making a booking. We thoroughly recommend Talunga Estate.

Stopped here for lunch. Was a pleasant setting, lovely fire inside. Friendly helpful staff. Not a huge meal menu, but adequate for a casual lunch. Mainly pizza, cheese type platters, with a choice of desserts coffee etc. Good wine tasting, good wines, and a good afternoon.

Donna the owner was very friendly, chatty and made you feel comfortable and relaxed.
We tasted all their wines and with our sweet tooth we had a glass of moscatino each.
Coupon was for $26.00 for 2 people we shared 2 large spring rolls which we really tasty (Donna made these). We shared a nine inch pizza (lots of choices for toppings). We both said we could have another one of these as this was yummy
We ended up paying an extra $10.00 and sharing an apple and berry crumble with ice cream (Donna made this) delicious. The wood fire created a nice ambience and warmth.
Great day with a picturesque trip as it is in the hills.

We went for lunch on a Groupon. It was for a pizza and wine.

Great value, great service and great pizza.

What's more to be said? A friendly, happy staff wanting to share their local knowledge of wines and food. A cosy atmosphere. Fantastic.

This is a great way to get out, check out all those smaller tucked away wineries.
And appreciate their wines and pioneering spirit. They all have a unique story to tell of their founding. By sharing in their produce you help even more by spreading their brand.

With my magic Mike it was a tasty experience. Will definitely be back to sample more of the wine and food menus

Our extended family enjoyed Easter Sunday lunch here. The menu is limited but we all found a main course to suit, including pizzas for the children. Taste the wine before you purchase from the bar. Prices are good. A few of us had desserts which were delicious. Service was excellent and it was a nice touch having Easter serviettes on the table. Entertainment vouchers were accepted and discount given even though it was Easter Sunday. Vouchers were returned to us to use again. This restaurant is in a very picturesque setting. Will return again.
