5 to try: wine, cocktails & craft beer

They say wine is bottled poetry, cocktails are neat and craft beer makes us hoppy- but where can you try some of the best drops in the West?

Do late night cocktails and Asian-Australian fusion food make you tick? Head over to Lovesick!

This high-end cocktail and wine bar in Point Cook offers contemporary beer lines and an extensive spirit list.  Sit back on a lux seat and sip a Crouching Tiger and devour a crumbed katsu slider with a side of dumplings. If you feel like a warming dish, order the moorish Massaman beef cheek curry paired with a mulled wine.

There’s also bottomless brunch to enjoy! Bottoms up!

Casa Cantina
Dónde es la peda?  (Where is the party?)  At Casa Cantina of course!  

Werribee’s first late-night Mexican venue is an inviting space where the cocktails are icy, and the food is spicy.  At Casa Cantina, you’ll find a carefully crafted cocktail list as well as the biggest tequila offering in the West! There’s also an excellent line-up of local and imported wines, beers, and spirits.

Prepare yourself for a culinary fiesta and try the succulent chicken wings marinated with the chef’s spicy sauce or the belly-pleasing Baja fish tacos washed down with a classic margarita. Salud!

Shadowfax Winery
Dedicated to creating high quality, handcrafted wines, Shadowfax Winery is a must try for wine lovers!

The Shadowfax drinks list showcases both current releases and museum wines from the cellar, as well as a selection of premium craft beers from local Victorian breweries. Try the medium body Minnow rosé, which offers a smoky and spicy bouquet. Or if you prefer white varietals, opt for the 2020 Chardonnay: an elegant drop with gentle oak and nectarine notes.

You can also enjoy
fine regional produce from phyllo wrapped saganaki, to Werribee barramundi and a range of wood fire pizzas!

Old Habits
Old habits are hard to break, so why bother?  

If you’re a fan of craft beers, head over to Old Habits CBW – a Craft Beer, Wine and Spirit shop based in the main street of Werribee!  Offering a wide range of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails, Old Habits has an easy going environment where anybody from anywhere can come in and enjoy a drink inside or outdoors.

Try a smooth Peanut Butter Porter or a zippy Imperial Mango Sour to tantalise your tastebuds! There’s also a Spiced Fig brew to warm your soul.

Corked Wine Bar
Does the idea of carefully curated, local, and international drops take your fancy? Well, swirl your way into Corked Wine Bar.

Whether you’re a traditional wine purist or a lover of new age Australian varietals, Corked’s wine list caters to all tastes. Start off with a glass of crisp Umberto Luigi Domenico Prosecco, with delicious honeysuckle notes. Followed by a glass of Domaine Taupenot-Merme Pinot Noir from Burgundy offering a velvety mouthfeel of red fruits and aged oak.

If you’re feeling peckish, complement your wine with a selection of cured meats, Artisan cheese, home-made dips, bread and more!
