The staff at the Hay Shed Hill cellar door have that famous Margaret River hospitality. They’re friendly and happy to have a yarn over a tasting or two.

You’ll also find a small art gallery here.

At the cellar door there’s a range of great local produce and wine-themed giftware. You’re sure to meet their famous wine dog Becky, a beautiful black Labrador, who has graced the cover of a wine dogs book.

The grounds are filled with rusted metal artwork, as well as some beautiful roses.

Now that we were in the know with our favourite drops at the cellar door, we ordered a nice drop of Shiraz and an SBS. There’s a good range of drinks available, including non-alcoholic “Mocktails”, if you’d like something fancy, without the booze.

The lovely restaurant may seem familiar, the original Rustico, is a popular tapas spot on the Rockingham foreshore.

Their sister restaurant has a similar Spanish small plates menu, that are perfect to share with friends – or in our case our daughter. She was so pleased to see that a good 70-80% of the menu items are gluten free. The only dish we chose that wasn’t GF was the crisp croquettes ($16) filled with gooey cheese and sweetcorn were a hit, especially dunked in aioli.

The fried goat’s cheese ($18) is creamy and lush. Drizzled in a little orange blossom honey it’s perfect with a sip of vino {gf}. We just can’t go past a bit of pork belly ($26), the moist belly meat, topped with crisp crackle is served with a burnt apple and pedro ximinez jus {gf}. The lamb scotch fillet ($25) sat upon a deliciously smoked eggplant and shiraz salsa {gf}

We also enjoyed the Duck tacos ($24) and broccolini ($16) sautéed with garlic and pistachio. And no Spanish feast is complete without PATATAS BRAVAS ($12). Super crisp spuds, cooked in Spanish spices and served with a chipotle aioli for even more kick. {gf}.

After all that we had no room for dessert or cheese and biscuits. If you love your cheese there’s lots of cheese to take away too.
