Pt. Leo Estate has opened its temporary space, the Pavilion, following the property's devastating fire earlier this year.

Pt. Leo Estate has opened the temporary Pt. Leo Pavilion following a damaging fire on the property in May. 

A placeholder until the relaunch of Laura and the Pt. Leo Restaurant later this year, the Pavilion is bright and contemporary, with natural furnishings and statement lights. In true Pt. Leo Estate form, the Pavilion also features sculpture art, including Droplets by Jane Valentine.

Bird's eye view of share plates and two glasses of red winePt. Leo Pavilion's three-course menu has been designed by Josep Espuga.

Open daily for lunch and Saturday for dinner, the three-course sharing menu, imagined by culinary director Josep Espuga, offers a host of entrees including oysters, caviar and Red Hill truffles, two main dishes with sides (think 28 day-aged striploin, with peppercorn and beurre monte, and Humpty Doo barramundi with confit chilli, scallion, and smoked bone vinegar), plus dessert.

Snacks are available over the counter for walk-ins, and on Saturday nights the cellar door becomes a Champagne, cocktail and caviar bar.

For drinks, options include the Wine Progressions – which includes three glasses of wine – or something from head sommelier Amy Oliver's list.

General manager Roger Lancia says the Pavilion is a testament to the winery's team and the community who continue to support Pt. Leo Estate.

“I am so very excited to be at the helm of an organisation that is rich with extremely talented and proactive people. After two years of interruptions due to the pandemic, one would be forgiven for lacking the energy to think outside the box. Instead, we have been able to recreate a generous and contemporary dining experience that exists harmoniously with our amazing cellar door and world-class Sculpture Park."

The Pt. Leo Pavilion is now open and taking bookings. Visit for more information.
