Whitfield Estate, Picnic in the Paddock Café and Pawprint Chocolate
Enjoy it all…… Graham and Kelly Howard welcome you to their beautiful rural property located just five minutes from the Scotsdale Tourist Drive. Though the road can be a little bumpy, the service and quality is certainly not. Enjoy the adventure…
WINES…The range of Whitfield Estate wines have achieved success at wine shows across Australia. The vineyard was first planted in 1994, these days Graham and Kelly use a ‘hands-off’ approach and allow nature to do the work. In more recent years the canopy management has been changed to achieve consistent ripening, particularly in the red varieties. The wines are made under the careful guidance of Dave Cleary, Senior Winemaker at West Cape Howe wines. Sample the Whitfield Estate range at the cellar door with the wines available for tasting and purchase or enjoy a glass with lunch.
CAFE'…Quality home-style cooking with a menu that has something for everyone. Visit the warm and comfortable café with stunning close-up views of giant jarrah and marri trees set amongst the rolling farmland. ‘Picnic in the Paddock’ café uses local fresh produce. Marron is sourced from a farm just a few kilometres away, the beef from Denmark and the vegetables are sourced from neighbouring properties when the season allows. There is something for the kids too as well as a selection of delicious cakes and biscuits all made on-site. All this matched perfectly with a glass of Whitfield Estate wine or a freshly made barista coffee…mmm….
CHOCOLATE… Named after our lovable Bernese Mountain Dogs, Mac and Bud our range of chocolates is just like them… fun, friendly and family focused. After learning more about the art of chocolate making in Melbourne in early 2010 Kelly starting experimenting with different flavours and styles of chocolate for the Pawprint range. After many trials (and complaints from friends about the amount of chocolate they were asked to try) our range now has over 20 flavours - with more to come. Many are everyday foods teamed with good chocolate and by using only fresh quality ingredients it makes them something special. The base chocolate we use is a Cadbury product made in Australia and all Pawprint chocolates are hand-made right here at Picnic in the Paddock. What’s your favourite?
CHEESE…Chris Vogel is the cheese maker, owner and creator of Dellendale Creamery. Chris has a degree in cheese making and worked as a cheese maker in Switzerland for 10 years. After arriving back in Australia Chris set about building his own cheese factory. After years of research and juggling work commitments Chris produced his first batch of cheese in early 2010. Located under the shadow of Mt Lindesay the milk travels a mere four kilometres from dairy to factory. Dellendale Creamy cheeses are currently only available at Picnic in the Paddock Cafe'. Available for tasting and purchase.
