Our next wine lunch will be a stunning way to celebrate a fresh new season and with Pitchfork Restaurant as the hosts, you just know it’s going to be good! Deb Caruso previews what’s going to be on the plate and in the glass.

Fresh and flavoursome will be the name of the game when Pitchfork Restaurant in the heart of The Village at Peregian Beach hosts our next Hello Sunshine Magazine wine lunch! 

While it is a few months away and we have the stunning summer menu to feast our way through, the Celebrate Autumn Pitchfork wine lunch is set to be an absolute cracker.

Matt and Debs Spencer, who bought the dining institution in September 2021 are excited about showcasing what they love about their restaurant.

“We have had such a warm welcome and love the buzz of the Village,” Debs said. “Our chefs are amazing with their passion for obtaining the best possible ingredients that the season has to offer and creating dishes that are fresh, simple and most importantly, loved by our customers.”

It’s a family affair with Debs and Matt’s three children regularly working in the restaurant.

With a sensational summer ahead, Matt and Debs plan to close the restaurant from 15 February until the first of March to give their family and the team a much-needed break.

“The wine lunch will be a double celebration of our return as well as the new menu with the chefs extremely keen to deliver fresh, new flavours,” she said.

Wines will be hand-selected to match the dishes and presented by family-owned Domaine Wine Shippers who represent premium quality wines from Australian Vineyards as well as vineyards from France, Italy, Portugal and the New Zealand regions of Marlborough and Otago. We can’t wait to see what they bring to the table!

The Celebrate Autumn lunch will indeed be a celebration of paddock-to-plate; grape-to-glass and the warmest and friendliest service, all in a stunning setting from one of the region’s most respected dining institutions.

Don’t miss out! 


Thank you to the team at Pitchfork Restaurant for such a sensational wine lunch! On Friday 10 March, guests indulged in a decadent 3-course menu paired with wines from Domaine Wine Shippers. The social photos are in – check out all the fizz and flavour HERE!
