The Cups Estate

by Lorraine A (follow)
It's time to get the girls together to treat yourself to an amazing lunch out at The Cups Estate on the Mornington Peninsula.



Having recently celebrated my friend's bridal shower at The Cups Estate and after thoroughly enjoying it, I decided it would only be fair to share this small, family operated boutique vineyard with you.



This relaxed winery is small enough to be intimate, yet big enough not to feel crowded. Tables are well spaced from each other and the floor plan is cleverly designed to maximise the views over the vineyard and olive grove. Beautifully arranged native flowers adorned each of the tables as did nice cutlery and glassware.

The food is tapas style, which I think works really well when you're out with friends. I think in our case especially it added another social dimension, as most of us barely knew each other when we arrived, and sharing food helped to get the conversations following early on.



For our lunch we chose 'The Estate' set menu at $60 per person for a 4 course meal. Our first course consisted of oysters and a charcuterie board with a selection of cured meats,
terrine, pâté, pickles, olives & bread.

Followed by croquettes, a stunning beetroot salad and their famous calamari tacos.

Next up were the cute pork belly sliders on brioche buns, pan roasted duck breast with butternut pumpkin and hazelnuts, incredibly tasty sweet corn and a lovely salad.

Dessert was warm donuts with vanilla ice cream, slivered almonds and sliced strawberries...Yum!



"Food is designed to be shared amongst friends and is served in the centre of the table in keeping with the European style of eating. The recipes are inspired by our family's Sicilian heritage and travels abroad".

As you can see from the photos, the food is super fresh, tasty and great to share.

There are other set menus to choose from along with a standard menu that can be viewed on their website here.

To finish off a perfect girl's day you might want to head next door to the Peninsula Hot Springs. The Cups Estate and the Hot Springs offer dine and bathe packages.
