Nice wines from cool climate vineyards in Mornington Peninsula as well as their own. Charge 5 dollars but not if you buy a wine. Very attractive setting and looks as if it is nice, but probably expensive, place to it.

The total experience at Polperro is memorable. You have the most beautiful surroundings with the winery set in the most stunning grounds and the restaurant is lovely, fabulous food and really attentive staff. A very complete experience.

The most expensive "sharing plate" was Barrumdi at $70 which I thought was too expensive for a restaurant in Red Hill, so we skipped it. We did have the lamb sharing plate at $65 which was good. The 2017 Pinot Gris from the estate wast...More

I think the question is to do with the first date from a web site rather than the experience at the restaurant. ha ha.

Description
Polperro is nestled among the vines and shaded by ancient Angophora trees on a stunning 25 acre property in the heart of the famous wine region Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula. Our aim is to create a synergy between the vineyard and kitchen, and incorporate the seasonal harvests from the estate into the constantly evolving bistro plates. We are committed to an ethos that promotes a relationship between the landscape, the people and the produce. Our approach is to offer fresh, textural & seasonal flavours with an emphasis on where the food comes from and how it is grown. A collaboration between winemaker and chef ensures a new generation of food & wine offerings. There is a strong focus towards casual dining and drinking with service that is both informed and personable.
