Judges reports in 2021
Leura Park Estate is found just before the first traffic island on the dual carriageway leading from Geelong to Queenscliff. The eye-catching building is great for enjoying great wines, a local beer, live music alfresco, or a comfy spot beside the inside fireplace. Meals were of surprising quality and the FOH team ensure service runs very smoothly. The clever interior design enables different groups to enjoy privacy, the open fire, and views of the lawn area where the kids can burn off excess energy! Service features true hospitality professionals with great knowledge of the food and drinks on offer. The improvement in food offered since my last review is impressive and Leura Park produces enough great wine varieties to offer a very good wine list (all available by the glass). The winery is also rare in that it offers good beers and coffees. Leura Park is great value for money and one of the reasons for its success.
