Mr. D and I went to Wilsons Promontory National Park last weekend for a short break. It was a last minute decision and fortunately we were able to find accommodation nearby the national park. It was our first visit and we were awed by the scenery. We took the Tidal Overlook Circuit walk at Wilsons Prom and we were greeted by picturesque views. The scenery was simply breathtaking and we were lucky that the weather was sunny and therefore the pictures turned out really well.
As frequent readers should know by now, I’m always on the look out for nice food to eat wherever I go. The night before we left for our mini vacation, I was scouring the internet for good restaurants around the area. As I expected, there was not much eating places around. Most of the restaurants are located in Port Albert, 2 hours drive away from where we stayed. I persevered and finally found Waratah Hills Vineyard.
I am extremely glad that I found the place as it is awesome! The owner was polite and super friendly. We were first brought to the wine tasting area and I tried their sparkling wine, Pinot Noir, and rosé. The one that really caught my attention was the Pinot Noir. Don’t be fooled by its light color as it is very flavorsome and most importantly to me, it is also velvety smooth. Definitely going into my favorite list. We ordered the special of the day, lunch tapas and both of us ate it with gusto. You can taste the freshness of the ingredients used to prepare the meal. For dessert, we had Persian love cake served with Greek yoghurt and orange slices. Mr. D was skeptical at first as he had not heard of the dessert before but later he realized that he was wrong. He loved it to bits! The cake is gluten free consisting of almond meals, sugar, butter, eggs, Greek yoghurt, and nutmeg. The combination of crumbly top and crunchy base of the cake left us wanting more. It will definitely be worth it to make a stop here to fuel up your tummy before heading towards Wilsons Prom.
