A NEW casual dining venue is coming to All Saints Estate at Wahgunyah next month.
Eliza, Nick and Angela Brown will open Bonnie - offering wood-fired pizza and a menu celebrating local and estate-grown produce and wines - on Boxing Day.
Eliza said Bonnie was a labour of love, taking over the site of artisan food store Indigo Food Co.
"When my siblings and I discussed our dream for All Saints Estate back in March 2020, it was the start of the pandemic," she said.
"We never thought we would be breaking ground on two new restaurants and a stunning new cellar door while still in a pandemic.
"Our goal was to come out of this challenging time with a positive outlook.
"Our aim with these renovations is to introduce international-worthy facilities for our loyal customers and new customers from around Australia and beyond."
