Great Minds Drink Alike : Sittella Winery, Swan Valley

Time for another trip to a winery. This time we will be visiting Sittella Winery in Herne Hill, Swan Valley. We visited on a lovely sunny day in the week and it was a good job we had booked as it looked very busy. We had a table overlooking the beautiful vineyards that surround the restaurant.

The winery is named after the Sittella bird and they nest along the banks of the Swan River.

It was opened in 1998 by Simon and Maaike Berns. Maaike is Dutch Indonesian which is why the menu is so interesting.

The restaurant is called The Nest and the menu had a great variety to select from so it took us a while.

I have to mention the Sittella Strawberry Basket was without doubt the best dessert I have tasted in a long while!

Inside the restaurant, decorating the walls were some beautiful murals and artwork.

Even though it is winter now, everything is still so green and lush, except perhaps the vines themselves! The gazebo looks to be sinking and it’s not just a wonky photo I took.

Sittella is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm. It’s definitely best to book especially on a weekend. As I mentioned it’s situated in the Swan Valley just over 30 minutes from Perth’s CBD. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did if you ever get a chance to visit.
