Last week we spent some time in Melbourne... what a drag..... Eating, drinking, a touch of shopping and to finish off with a wonderful trade tasting with World Wine Estates - our new Ozzie distributors. 

While the lucky people of Melbourne have such a huge everyday choice of where they will wine & dine The Millton Vineyard has a few favorites that we love to return too:

The brief Millton Vineyards weekend guide to eating & drinking in Melbourne.

Cumulus Inc.

 Shakshouka- Backed eggs with roasted peppers & marinated Persian feta. With of course the daily baked fresh bread and a good coffee.
Golden Fields - St Kilda
The new partner to Cululus and Cutler & Co.
 No better way to spend a Grey Sunday afternoon at Golden Fields listening to Records and experiencing some very well thought flavors.  A modern Asian influenced menu that leaves you completely satisfied and wanting to return for more.
It seems that we have a thing for oysters.... & I think we do. While in Melbourne I seemed to take food photos of only Oysters but we did eat a lot more....
Golden Fields afternoon consisted of,
Oysters,New England Loster roll , Crispy soft shell crab, Rustic pork dumplings, Twice cooked duck in steamed bread and the perfect ending was Shredded cabbage salad with Morton Bay bugs. A menu to view

We all know Movida & all love it.

Oysters with Cider & Garlic foam......  wow.
We are a slight fan of  Chenin Blanc. While at Movida we drank a seriously beautiful Demi-Sec Chenin Blanc that went with every dish we devoured 2007 Pichot Vouvray Demi- Sec Chenin Blanc. If you can find it try it and maybe you would like to send a bottle to the Winery also please.

Melbourne, were do you stop.
Chin Chin, Cutler&Co, GingerBoy, City Wine Shop, Coda, and many many more.
Cheers to World Wine Estates for taking us under your wing and also to you fullaz across the ditch for having such a massive interest and support of what we do.
As I type, funny enough, the truck has arrived to pick up Crazy by Nature Dry Flint Chenin Blanc, Te Arai Chenin Blanc & Riverpoint Viognier. Leaving us and ready for y'all to drink in Australia.
