We also tried the prose Summer Cocktail Special $14 where you can make your own Prose Cocktail with prosecco and sorbet, guided by the staff and DIY garnish
Charcuterie boards are pretty reasonable, one cheese for $10 or 4 for $46 and charcuterie meats for $24Cheese and Charcuterie curated by the Formaggi Ocelli Cheese Specialist, make your own selection of soft cheeses; from Camembert, Brie or Goat milk to washed rind cheeses, hard and semi hard cheeses or Blue. We opted for the Cacio di Bosco; a sheep milk cheese with shaved white truffle from Tuscany, Italy. We also had a blue cheese, complemented by crackers. You can also order salamis, Bresaola, prosciutto or serrano.
If you enjoy wine and cheese, this place is a must. The knowledgable staff willing to assist if required and do a generous pour. We enjoyed the hospitality and thank the urban winery for inviting us to visit.
