McDougall Winery – Mildura

I had the pleasure of spending a Sunday afternoon here!

On a Sunday afternoon the winery offers live music (on the afternoon it was blues artist Rusty Bonnit, lol), and a lovely setting to enjoy some drinks and simple food.

Having lived in Mildura, I felt like you are having a drink at the back of someones fruit block, it is homely, kitsch, and quirky.

Tables are outside, and a mix and match of old dinning tables. They are all under vines, which would be beautiful in summer. There are a few pot belly stoves around to keep everyone warm.

It’s also a great place to take kids, there is an old yellow school bus to play on, a few bits of junior place equipment and a friendly dog named Sally wandering around.

There also other old things lying around to have a look at, including cars, old farm machinery and even an old piano.

Wines are offered by the glass or bottle, and you can get beer, spirits, soft drink as well.

There is a small menu of shared platters and simple traditional pizzas.

The platters were generous, and the breads that can with,  were yummy!

Pizzas were also good, with some interesting toppings such as beetroot and beef, and also the classics like Margarita and Hawaiian for the kids.

Keep in mind this is not a restaurant, its fairly relaxed, and you go and order and pay at the bar as you go, go when you have a few hours to spend with friends.
