Piazza d’oro coffee. 1596 Broke Road, Pokolbin. Not every winery in the Hunter Valley has a café attached, but Oakvale has “espresso” written on its gates, so we decided to call in.
The background noise is a mix of radio and cellar door wine spiel; a range of reasonably priced food options are on offer.
Coffee takes a while to arrive, and comes out with a very thick head of foam on it – strong enough to take the weight of a teaspoon – that masks the flavour of the beans.
