Mount View is a beautiful, unspoiled wine area in Hunter Valley Wine Country, bordering the busier tourist hub of Pokolbin. There are two alfreso dining venues in boutique wineries - Bistro Molines (a chefs hatted restaurant) at the Tuscany inspired, Tallavera Grove vineyard and Briar Grillade at Briar Ridge a couple of minutes further towards Pokolbin.

These relatively new eateries, both run by iconic Hunter chef Robert Molines and his wife Sally, offer visitors a refreshingly different experience, in tranquil, picture-postcard surrounds The menus are quite different, so that you can enjoy varied experiences at both venues. Briar Grillade is open for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea from Wednesday to Sunday. The house specialty is the outdoor BBQ grill with a delicious selection of share plates featuring beef, poultry, game and vegetarian options. In addition there are dips plates, bruschetta, pommes frites, salads and sweet things to have with great coffee and Briar Ridge wines by the glass or bottle, plus a selection of beers and soft drinks. Book on (02) 4990 8601.

Bistro Molines is truly unique. The panoramic views are stunning, encompassing the Brokenback Mountains, rolling vineyards and beautiful landscapes with stock grazing and the occasional kangaroos and colourful bird-life. The menu is inspiring and shows the great passion for fresh, seasonal, mouth-watering food by Robert and his team. Robert's wife Sally creates a visual feast inside the restaurant displaying her flair for decorating with a European twist that is warm and inviting. An interesting wine list features Tallavera Grove Wines and wines from Robert & Sally's vineyard, plus a mix of international and local wine and beer. Bistro Molines is open for lunch Thursday to Monday and dinner Friday, Saturday nights. Bookings are highly recommended as it is often booked out. Phone (02) 4990 9553.
