Highly recommended: An Afghan feast in rural Australia

I was fortunate enough to spend last weekend in Coonawarra, one of my favourite wine regions in Australia. 

Coonawarra, midway between Adelaide and Melbourne, produces high-quality medium-bodied wines that often offer excellent value for money.
One of the highlights of a weekend of wining and dining as part of the Coonawarra Cabernet Celebrations was an Afghan feast at Bellwether Wines, where Sue Bell has transformed the former Glen Roy shearing shed to one of Australia's quirkiest cellar doors. 

If you are looking for atmosphere and history along with great wines, this spot should be on your list.

Over the past decade former Stonehaven winemaker Bell has transformed a decrepit 1868 building into a winery, tasting room, produce garden and sometime eatery, along with offering camping and glamping experiences.
A team of local Aghan ladies from nearby Narracorte served up a superb long table lunch on Sunday - and the same experience is available this Sunday, the final weekend of the celebrations.

The get-together for a maximum of 40 people gives visitors to chance to learn about both Afghan culture and food with a shared meal in delightful surroundings.

A meal and a glass of wine cost just $45 and bookings are essential.
