A beautiful homestead in a romantic setting, a short drive to the township. We chose something more private and relaxing, rather than a busy hotel in the centre of town and weren't disappointed, it was the perfect blend of rustic and modern.
We are so lucky to live in Melbourne and have some of the country's best restaurants at our doorstep. So when we are in the country, especially in another state we (foolishly) had relatively low expectations of the local restaurants. We were happily proven wrong with Must and also Winos. They both had incredible wine lists, as you would expect from a fine dining restaurant in the area but we were also so pleased with the service and the menus offered. Such a perfect way to end our busy days!
We came across this winery by chance, we had just been exploring caves and were about to call it a day. On a whim we decided to pull into the next winery we past for a quick tasting. What a great decision! Eagle Vale is run by a French man who has been in the area for 36 years and was so informative and happy to tell us (mostly in english but a lot of random french as well) all about his wines, the history of the area and what makes the wine in Margaret River so different (and so delicious). We left with several bottles and big smiles on our faces.
