2014 witnessed the most significant architectural developments to the Seppeltsfield estate in 94 years, with the welcoming of FINO Seppeltsfield restaurant as a destination dining centrepiece.
FINO’s food philosophy places the ultimate importance on produce and its provenance, with a deep commitment to every customer’s enjoyment and an authentic connection to the Barossa region, its culture and people.
Described by Australian food critic John Lethlean as “..the best place in Australia for a long lunch..”, FINO offers four architecturally inspired dining footprints including the majestic fire-side Dining Room, an enclosed garden-view Veranda, European-style garden Terrace and a stunning Cellar space carved from original Bluestone wine tanks – a popular venue for privately hosted events.
FINO partners Sharon Romeo and David Swain have honed their vision for progressive regional dining excellence over hospitality careers spanning several cities and decades.
Sharon’s intuitive service and wealth of knowledge offers guests a dining experience of rare warmth and precision – while David’s respectful relationships with local farmers and producers gives him the ingredients and the inspiration to create FINO’s signature, deceptively simple yet innovative cuisine.
FINO’s menus reflect the generous, sharing-style philosophy symbolic of Sharon’s rich Italian heritage and David’s dedication to regionally-inspired seasonal produce. They believe passionately in the alchemy of sharing a beautiful meal, fostering the FINO ethos; Beautifully-crafted food and a thoughtful, finely-balanced wine list delivered with love and care.
