"First Bite.


All Saints vineyard, on the Victorian/NSW border at Wahgunyah, has made another impressive appointment to its restaurant team, hiring the current director of wine at Vue de Monde, no less, as operations manager of its hospitality outlets. Rocco Esposito joins the Brown family's wineries in six weeks. Last year, All Saints hired well-known Britpack chef Simon Arkless for the All Saints and St Leonards vineyards (owned by the same family). A job for his wife Cait, formerly a chef at Melbourne Mexican phenomenon Mamasita, was part of the package. Esposito, who moved to Australia from Italy at 24, ran his own acclaimed restaurant, Wardens in Beechworth. He plans to plant grapes on land he owns just outside Beechworth as part of his second tree-change."
