Fortuitously, my last trip back to Adelaide managed to cover a few birthdays - my Mum, SIL Letitia and niece India. I love being back for birthdays, or any celebration really, because we do miss out on so many with us living on the other side of the world.
I treated my Mum & Dad to a glorious lunch at The Lane Vineyard in Hahndorf on my Mum's birthday. We'd eaten a few times at The Lane before and it's never disappointed. It's high end dining amidst a vineyard. You can visit for a meal (I would recommend booking), or just drop past for a wine tasting.
The menu was so lovely (as it always is), that we didn't want to miss out on anything, so each of us had two starters and a dessert, instead of a starter and a main. We also shared a plate of their spiced almonds with a few glasses of their Lois Sparkling Blanc de Blanc to get us away.
I started with the Confit Duck Sausage with Pistachio and Poached Quince (flipping amazing!), and chased it with the Jamon, Burnt Onions, Goats Curd, Roasted Beets and Maple Syrup (swoon!). Even though it was only two starters, I could hardly manage any dessert, but did force down a gorgeous little jar of salted caramel popcorn.

and Maple Syrup starter. It tasted as amazing as it looked.
The staff are glorious and helpful, the location is so picturesque and the food is top notch. Go and treat yourself for a special occasion, or even for no reason at all, you'll love it.
