Just wanted to say thank you so much to you and your lovely wife for the wonderful lunch we had at your winery yesterday. It was my birthday, which we never told you, but your warm welcome, special attention and awesome service and food really made my day. And thank you for the beautiful bottle of liqueur – totally unexpected! We wish you all the very best with the extensions, and look forward to bringing a bunch of friends over soon for a Brazilian night.
“We were there on Saturday night (you let us go first on our side of the table) and my mum is IN LOVE with it, so we are now coming again for mum and dad’s birthdays in June!”
“We so enjoyed our time with you during a long afternoon on Saturday 30th April!
The view from View Cafe will be etched in out city memories for years, and although I have never traveled to Spain or Portugal those with us who had were transported back there in the warmth we felt, both in the beautiful day and your hospitality.
I loved being there from the first sizzle through to the completed paella’s – amazing! And you added to the obvious enjoyment of your huge number of guests by your timely words to them.
Service of our diverse group was so good and understanding! I had not gathered so many together before, and won’t repeat it again until they are much older, but they all loved it – including the drinks and dessert choices!
I cannot believe that you will all be as busy again next Mother’s day Sunday! All the very best, and our sincere thanks for everything.”

“Went to the winery for dinner on Friday night with a group of friends. We went for the Churrasco or Brazilian Flame Grill. It was terrific the best meat I have ever eaten. Beautifully grilled suculent, tasty morsels carved at the table. They kept bringing it until we were completely stuffed full. The vegetables and new tempranillo to die for.” – Phill
“We went for an event, the Sunday Tapas Feast which included entrees, (10) different tapas dishes and wine tastings and also a cheese platter. What a great way to sample what the chef has to offer! The food was very good. My favourite was the dates with blue cheese and chilli and wrapped in proscuitto. Yum!!” – foodiewomow
“Great Tapas, Paella nights or just great to have a wine and soak up the view. Staff are inviting helpful warm and accommodating Can’t give them much more of a wrap than that.” – Steve
“Only open Thursday through Sunday from 10 in the morning til late. From your table on the verandah you can see for miles and miles. Rolling hills and green farmland. Right below are the grape vines. Start with breads and dips and then get serious with a great range of Spanish tapas that you will share with your fellow travelers … “ – Aussiebob
“Tapas style food produced from fresh local ingredients is available from this charming, relaxed cafe with a stunning view across the valley. The verandah lined with perfumed roses is perfect on fine days …”
“It has been shown on Postcards, a Melbourne TV travel and food show, a while back and I couldn’t catch it’s name. So I searched endlessly and gave up eventually. However, maybe a year or two later it was shown on Coxy’s Big Break, but I missed the name again. For some reason, I just ended up searching ‘Victoria Paella’ and Brandy Creek Wines shows up at the top.
Curious enough, I looked to see what they had, and the Paella Feast piqued my interest. We also had my parent’s anniversary coming up, so it was good timing.
Located in Drouin East, near Warragul, their Paella Feasts are quite an attraction. With 6 large bowls of 5 different styles of Paella, and one cazuella. You definitely get your monies worth here.”
“Two tips: arrive early and save room for dessert — perhaps saffron-poached pear on mille-feuille with sweet cream ($11).” – Tricia Welsh
“For lunch, we went to the View Cafe at Brandy Creek Wines, where a tapas menu and a magnificent view over the valley awaited us. Highlights of the meal were the beetroot and pomegranate dip ($7.50), topped with pink peppercorns that give it a little kick, and the roast pork belly ($9.50) which was baked with fennel seed and rosemary, and served with quince. Great combination of flavours. Mmmmm, quince.”
“Pinot gris, tempranillo and pinot meunier have been progressively established, with other varieties purchased from local growers. The café (and surrounding vineyard) is situated on a northeast-facing slope with spectacular views out to the Baw Baw Ranges.”
