Both the restaurant and Binary are headed up by our superstar chef Joel Grudnoff. Focusing on fresh seasonal produce and treating it with respect is Joel’s passion. You’ll see the farmer in him on the plate with regular input into what goes into the estate vegetable and herb gardens and a passion for using products from the winery and brewery. Working closely with the Brewer(Hannah) and the Winemaker (Thomas) was one thing that attracted him to the Estate.
