Two excellent restaurants in Margaret River is Wino’s ( picture above) and Waves (picture below). Wino’s have excellent wine and food and at Waves your can bring your own wine (we bought ours at the vineyard the same day) to enjoy with an outstanding seafood platter.
Second day in Margaret River we started at Voyager Estate. They have a fantastic rose garden and the second biggest flag in Australia (but the flag was missing 😦 ). After that we went to the family owned Watershed which had beautiful lavender outside. The third vineyard we went to (and we started to get a but drunk here….) was Gralyn Estate . They have really good fortified wines (stickies) and cold Cabernets.
First day in Margaret River we started at one of the most famous wineries; Leeuwin Estate. On many of the labels they have art work, much of which can be seen at the gallery at the winery. After that we went to Pierro which had a really nice Chardonnay (of which we bought way too many bottles….). Last winey was Howard Park where mum and Bertil invested in a vest each (they can’t bring any more wine back to Sweden…. 🙂 )
The Beaufort Street Festival was yesterday and the Perth street was crowded. They had closed the street for traffic, and instead of cars you could find hundreds of tents serving food, wine tasting, clothes and jewelers for sale, art, local band plying everything from to jazz, to heavy metal rock and thousands of people wandering the street up and down.
A friend of mine from Perth, Craig, had to spend a day in Singapore before he was to fly to Thailand. We catched up with two of his friends who are living in Singapore for luch. Imagine my happiness when one of them was Swedish! (cant help myself, I am always getting a bit excited when I get the opportunity to speak Swedish). We went for lunch at Wine Connection, a Tapas Bar located at Robertson Quay. This is one of the only places in Singapore to serve wine at super reasonable prices… If you are in Singapore this is definitely worth visiting for good wine and food.
