Our visit was at best disappointing. We had spent the day travelling Prosecco Road and after all the Cellar Doors closed at 5pm we hung around because the reviews for Mountain View were so good - unfortunately the reality didn’t even come close. There was...More

Nestled in the heart of the King Valley region we came across this wonderful little hotel and restaurant. The menu is very traditional Italian and exceptional quality. The wine selection was massive and some great local beers on tap! Beautiful garden and great hospitality!
