The Team


Meet The Team

We are incredibly lucky to be able to work with such a talented and diverse group of people at The Stables at Stones.

Lead by the charismatic and passionate Cameron McCormick, the team bring to the table not only a wealth of knowledge on all things culinary and wine related, but a fierce desire to be the best they can be - to learn more, teach more and experience more.

Working closely with Cameron is our general Restaurant Manager Marco Del Bianco, together they curate The Stables impeccable wine list: representing local and international winemakers and ensuring that the wine list pairs perfectly with the menu our Seasonal Menus.

Stones of the Yarra Valley’s Head Chef Shane Gipp oversees The Stables kitchen team, with Sous Chefs Ryan Smith and Nick Backhouse writing and executing our Seasonal Menus.

Our key focus at The Stables has always been to represent the best seasonal and regional ingredients our corner of the world has to offer. Working closely with suppliers such as Timbarra Farm and Little Creek Cattle (to name but a few!) ensures the quality of the product is always to the highest degree, and enables us to pay homage to the growers and farmers with our own take on their incredible work!”
