HOT: Waratah Hills, Fish Creek

waratah hills

Waratah Hills is an award-winning Prom Country winery in Southern Gippsland on the road to Wilsons Promontory.

It is one of Australia’s southern-most wineries and thus specialises in pinot noir and chardonnay.

All Waratah Hills and Prom Road wines can be tasted and purchased at the vineyard cellar door. As well as a cellar door they serve lunch on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The best way to approach the menu to order a lot of plates to share and enjoy it with a glass of wine!

I recommend the savoury pastries, the calamari, spicy chicken wings and of course don’t miss the cheese board with local cheese.

While you’re there admire the stylish decor, including this stunning bespoke wine and cheese trolley produced by the owners’ son Nick Travers (director of Techne Architects and Interior Design, responsible for many of Melbourne’s most famous restaurant fit outs).
