McLaren Vale, Visit 2
Woodstock Wine Estate
The hot chocolate came in a tall ceramic mug on a saucer. It was topped with a white forth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The drink had a dark chocolate flavour was not too sweet. The mug of hot chocolate cost four dollars.
Serafino is a resort, cellar door sales and winery on Kangarilla Road, McLaren Vale. It is just opposite the Oxenberry Cellar Door Sales which feature the McLaren Vale Bracegirdles outlet. The Serafino Restauranut provides and excellent view over gum trees and the lake which features ducks, geese and a fountain. The table service is excellent and the food is delicious.
The hot chocolate was unfortunately not up to the standard of the rest of the meal. The drink came in a coffee cup and was topped by a thin froth. The flavour was sweet and milky. It costs $3.50. Hot chocolate fans should save their tastebuds for the Belgian hot chocolate at Bracegirdles over the road.
This is an unpretentious snack bar on the main road of McLaren Vale. There is seating in the main shop as well as an outside verandah area to the side.
The hot chocolate came in a large LaVazza coffee cup and saucer. There was a heap of froth on top and a dusting of chocolate powder. A marshmallow was provided in the saucer. The drink had a milk chocolate flavour and cost was $3.50.
