27 Mar Meet the Team: Anna – our Reservations Coordinator
In the second instalment of our Meet the Team series, we introduce Anna, our Reservations Coordinator.
Anna is often the first person point of contact when guests are calling or emailing the The Lane Vineyard to book in lunch, a tasting or experience. Its her friendly voice you hear on the other end of the phone, and her recommendations guiding you to get the most of your visit to the estate.
Anna, tell us a little bit about yourself…
Originally from beautiful Jervis Bay on the South Coast of NSW. We chose Adelaide as our new home after spending 10 years living in the hustle and bustle of London in the UK. We recently bought a house in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. I have over 20 years’ experience working in travel and tourism.
What’s your favourite wine from The Lane?
And what’s your favourite dish from our restaurant?
The Fennel Salt from our pantry range is a staple in my kitchen and my “go to” gift for friends and family!
I’ve had so many great dishes in the restaurant – I cannot choose one. But the lilly pilly, strawberry and basil palate cleanser last autumn stands out as memorable one as it was so incredibly vibrant.
What’s the best thing about working at The Lane Vineyard?
The Lane is one of the first places I was taken to when I first moved to Adelaide, learning that it was a “must see”. It then became a permanent inclusion on my own itineraries for interstate and international friends and family coming to visit.
Now I get to be a part of the team at this iconic Adelaide Hills destination.
Working with chefs Tom, Cam and Kate has definitely encouraged me to become a more adventurous eater! I’ve tried delicious ingredients and dishes at The Lane that I would never have considered trying before.
What’s your favourite thing to do in the Adelaide Hills (besides coming to work, of course!)?
Coffee at Karkoo Nursery at Oakbank. It’s impossible to visit and not buy one or two plants to take home with you!
Also, I love taking visitors to the Stirling Laneways markets.
One random fact about you…
I enjoy playing classical piano. I’m a bit rusty but with a bit of practice it’s all coming back!
