Arimia Estate Review
The newest kid on the Margaret River block, boutique winery Arimia Estate has a charming, tree-surrounded cellar door and restaurant with a wraparound veranda perfect for lazy afternoons. Make a beeline for the deck and stay for a light lunch after sampling their award-winning wines. Savor the delicious pork shoulder terrine, before moving on to the pumpkin and nutmeg parpadelle sprinkled with toasted hazelnuts; the braised beef cheek with horseradish; or one of the wood-fired pizzas. Kids' meals are also available. Family-owned and -run since 1997 (the name Arimia is a combination of the owners' two daughter's names), the wines are described as “avant-garde” and aimed at the refined palette, categorized as Premium, Prestige, and Reserve. Don't be put off by the 2-km (1-mile) dirt road; it's well kept.
