Wills Domain

So we’d enjoyed olive oil at Olio Bello, then tapas at Morries, wine at Must, chocolate at the Margaret River Chocolate Factory, tasty sauces and jams at Providore and our final stop was at Wills Domain for a cheese platter and to partake in some of their wine.

Located in the world famous Margaret River wine region, in the South Western corner of Western Australia, Wills Domain is renowned for creating world class wines through its passionate application to Estate winemaking and a wealth of knowledge that has been passed down through the family vignerons since the 1300s.

So while Wills Domain is well known for their lovely wines they also have a solid reputation on the food front.

Our new Executive chef Bradley Hornby joins us with five years and high end dining experience including gaining two hats in his previous winery role. Bradley’s cooking style is modern Australasian focusing on fresh local produce and use of classical French techniques with modern equipment and influences. 

I was almost a little disappointed that we didn’t get to have lunch here on this visit as we looked through the menu. But given all our grazing throughout the day our focus really was just on their cheese offerings. We ordered a glass of Semillion each and their three cheese selection ($29.50)

The three cheeses included were firstly a Maffra mature cheddar (Maffra cheddar is sweet and rich with a moist and slightly crumbly texture. Each cheese is ripened under cloth to allow a thin rind to form and carefully matured to its optimal of 18 months to two years), second a Brebirousse d ‘Argental (Brebirousse d’Argental is a smooth and creamy brie style cheese made from sheep’s milk. Mild with delicate mushroom and earthy flavours it’s bloomy white rind is edged in orange and when perfectly ripe will sink slightly) and finally Shropshire blue (Shropshire Blue is a blue cheese made from pasteurised cows’ milk with a distinctive orange colour. It has been described as a cross between Stilton and Cheshire. It is a soft cheese with a sharp, strong flavour and a slightly tangy aroma).

It was such a picture perfect setting to enjoy a delicious plate of cheese. The rolling hills covered in beautiful grape vine greenery, all those (mostly) blue skies – just idyllic. From the crumbly cheese to the bitey blue to the indulgently creamy brie it was a well put together cheese plate and we enjoyed every mouthful!

All the cudos Wills Domain has received in recent times is well deserved and I would definitely like to return in the near future and enjoy lunch there. Lovely spot! Cheers to Wills Domain! Thanks for being the perfect place to conclude our day of South West exploration :)

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
