Not only can you sample Mount Ashby’s boutique winery reds and wines on a visit to this attractive Gallic-style winery cellar door complex near Moss Vale, you can also savour them over homemade soup, crusty bread and a charcuterie plate. A former dairy, from the cellar door there are gorgeous vineyard views framed by grazing Holsteins as well as a fully-fledged antique store.
The architecture of the building is a blend of French provincial and early Australian, and is in sympathy with their involvement in the importation and restoration of French Antique furniture of which examples will always be on view in the cellar door.
Also located on the site is the relocated Bowral Produce Store (Circa 1918).

Sally Beresford Antiques
A little pocket of Paddo in the middle of Southern Highlands at Mount Ashby Estate, Sally Beresford specialises in exquisite French farmhouse-style dining tables inside a relocated local produce store dating from the early 20th century. (One of Beresford’s wonderfully robust and sought-after tables even featured as a notable prop in MasterChef). Wander the suitably rustic store, stuffed with not just tables but all manner of provincial antique furniture, including 17th- to 19th-century antiques sourced from France and other parts of Europe.
If you are visiting the Southern Highlands you will find style exemplified at the Sally Beresford Antiques/French Farmhouse Tables showroom. The collection lives in a charming spot surrounded by vineyards and grazing dairy cows.
Step across to the Mount Ashby cellar door and Cafe “La Palette” to indulge your appetite for delights of the wine and culinary sorts. A healthy imagination needs a body nourished and sated.
