Log fires & warming reds ... Get cosy down south
The days are getting shorter and the nights longer. When it's time to put on your ugg boots instead of your thongs, you know Winter has arrived down south. For those who are not the biggest fans of the cold weather like me, and rather stay in instead of playing outside, here is a list of a few places where you can enjoy a nice glass of wine or beer while getting cosy in front of a crackling fire.
1. Watershed Winery
This picture perfect winery with its blazing stone fire invites you and your family to sit back in their comfy chairs and enjoy the beautiful scenery. They have scores of children books for the kids to enjoy while you decide which wine you are going to have. Try their rosemary chips if you feel a bit peckish. www.watershedwines.com.au
2. Xanadu Wines
Located just a few minutes south of Margaret River - Xanadu Wines is a one of a kind place to spend the whole afternoon simply relaxing. Enjoy a nice glass of their James Halliday winning Cabernet Sauvignon and nibble away on a cheese platter while listening to the crackling fire. For more information visit www.xanaduwines.com/
3. Eagle Bay Brewery
Eagle Bay Brewery is a family run restaurant, microbrewery and vineyard located up high at Eagle Bay. Why don't you combine a visit at the Brewery with a quick visit to the light house?
