PRINTHIE & SWIFT
Star Cellar DooR
The Swift family have taken a big gamble and it’s paid off. The gamble was to buy a second property at Nashdale. The main vineyard and winery is near Molong, too far to garner a strong cellar door following. In 2018 the Millwood Vineyard was planted on the cool Nashdale site with the cellar door taking residence in a huddle of corrugated sheds in 2020. Now there’s a new, architecturally inspired building – all polished concrete and floor-to-ceiling glass with a fabulous view of vines and bucolic countryside. It’s not only the cellar door but home to a new venture, Printhie Dining. Parisian expatriate Johann Calchera manages the facility with Melburnian Jack Brown rattling the pans. Tastings are every day with Printhie Dining open for lunch Wednesday to Sunday.
