Ironwood Estate Wines is a must do when in the absolutely gorgeous Porongurup Ranges. Ironwood Estate Wines PorongorupsNestled on the hillside overlooking the glorious Stirling Ranges, you could quite possibly sit and soak in the view for hours. The cafe is certainly set up to get the most of the view and delightful ambiance of the estate.Ironwood Estate Wines PorongorupsWe went on a beautiful sunny day and the ranges really did put on a show. It was lovely to dine alfresco, though in the cooler months, probably best to pack some warmer clothes as it does get chilly in the region. Ironwood Estate Wines Porongorups

Cellar is open for wine tastings and we enjoyed the Ironwood Estate Rocky Rose which was perfect for the warm day and of course our delicious meal. Ironwood Estate Wines PorongorupsWe ordered a cheese platter with a few extras and everything was fresh, tasty and perfectly paired with our tipple…Ironwood Estate Wines Porongorups…and a smoked salmon caesar salad which was divine!Ironwood Estate Wines Porongorups

Fortunately we are and he was such a lovely dog. Didn’t once beg or bother us either.  Ironwood Estate Wines Porongorups

About Kerry Lane

I am 67 years of age and retired. I was born and bred in Perth but now live with my husband, Michael, in Albany, Western Australia. We have four children and six grandchildren. I have always enjoyed sports but my passion was basketball in which I played and attained State level. I coached at both junior and senior levels. I was also the team manager for the Perth Quit Breakers (now known as the Perth Lynx) for many years and was on the Board of the WA Basketball Association. I worked for Woodside Energy for 19 years before transferring to Darwin with my husband, also a Woodsider, who took up management of the Northern Territory operations of the company. I was the Private Secretary to the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory Govt. during my time there before retiring. My husband and I then travelled around Australia in a caravan for a year before finally settling for a seachange in Albany. We built a house at beautiful Goode Beach, joined the Albany Golf Club and started to explore our surrounds. We have made many friends since arriving in Albany and family and friends from near and far enjoy visiting and experiencing our part of the world. We are heavily involved in the Golf Club which keeps us busy. I enjoy reading, wining, dining, good friends and still love to travel both here in Oz and overseas.
