In the Age Good Food Guide’s 38th year, Paringa Estate Winery & Restaurant backed up another stellar year by retaining it’s one Chef Hat rating in the 2019 Age Good Food Guide.
Owner Lindsay McCall is thrilled with the result of one chef’s hat for the sixth consecutive year.
The award gives further credence to Paringa Estate Winery & Restaurant’s status as not only one of the Mornington Peninsula’s finest dining venues (1 of 5 chefs hatted venues), but also ranks it as one of regional Victoria’s best 24 restaurants.
Congratulations to our fantastic restaurant team for this well earned recognition of their hard work and dedication to providing exemplary food and service
“There are larger and more glamorous vineyard restaurants, but Paringa Estate has the same charms – the view over the vineyard slopes, a smart fixed-price menu (two, three, or more courses), and some excellent wines. It’s cosy and welcoming, with the cellar door near the entrance, a good opportunity to taste before sitting at the table. The vegetable garden is an indication of how much Adam Beckett’s menu is attuned to the seasons: an early autumn dish of mushrooms with creamy goat’s cheese, say, topped with fine silky slices of steamed eggplant. The pleasure of Sher wagyu is heightened further by soy and Shichuan pepper, and the crunch of grains. Elegant whiting filets are jazzed up with capers, herbs and a garlic puree. Dishes come with recommended Paringa Estate wines, of course, but the list is broad enough that you can take your own vinous journey. The dessert selection play with flavours that go beyond the merely sweet, such as a treacle cake with figs in sour caramel served with milk ice cream and candied lemon.”
