Terrace Winebar & Restaurant - a relatively new and modern establishment in historical surroundings. Business is largely influenced by the changing of seasons, and often driven by an 'overwhelming' growing trend for overseas visitors coming specifically to the region. But the tourism industry isn't the only source providing increasing trade.

The rural drift, in recent years, has seen communities on the outskirts of the city, including Darfield, become more popular destinations - not just to visit for the day, but for a permanent change of lifestyle. In addition, months and months of dedicated customer service and commitment to the concept, along with involvement in, and support for, local community sports and events, means that the Terrace Winebar & Restaurant  is well-established in the wider community. In return, local support is "consistent, and growing" in a "progressive village, where there is a constant 'buzz' of development activity and positive energy!"
