Chittering Wine Trail

16 07 2006

We’d been meaning to try the wineries just north of Perth for a while, and today was it! It was an absolutely glorious winter’s day – and warm enough for just a T-shirt for most of the time. Off we went with another couple and headed north to Bullsbrook, then Chittering Rd where we followed the wine trail and tasted the wine at all bar one of the wineries.

First stop was Kyotmunga wines where the Classic White and the Grenache took our fancy, then on to Western Range and Stringybark where nothing stood out as being worth buying. We though of having lunch at Stringybark but the day was too nice to be inside in a dark dining area.. and besides the prices were fairly steep. So instead we drove on to Bindoon where we had the most fabulous pies (REAL steak in them!) at the bakery. We got extremely well fed for around $20 for the 4 of us… entrees at Stringybark were around $18 each and mains were close to $30 each, so I think we did well with the pies!

Next stop was Briery Estate just west of Bindoon, where we sat on the verandah in the sun enjoying the wide range of wines, talking to the owners, and feeding the lamb!

Next we lobbed in at Riseborough wines, which, unlike the others so far, was very high tech/modernist. And just look at the colour of that Rose!

Finally, we stopped at Jylland Wines about 30 minutes before closing time at 5:00pm. Another place where you could sit out on the verandah and enjoy the winter sunshine. So we did.

And here’s where we went…
