Wine and nougat prove a winning combination


Wine and nougat may seem like an unlikely gourmet combination but both have proved a success for Bettenay’s in Margaret River. 

The award-winning winery and nougat house is combining the pair with special locals days on Sundays from 1pm-5pm over winter. 

Locals can enjoy Bettenay’s wines by the glass for just $6, Espresso Nougaretto Martinis for $10 and toast nougat on the fire while relaxing to toe-tapping tunes from Radio Margaret River.

Product development manager Danica Bettenay said that for over 30 years Bettenay’s has been a part of the fabric of the Margaret River region.

“It’s the locals and community that makes living in the south west so special and we thought we could acknowledged that with Locals Day every Sunday,” she said. 

“To us, Sundays are the best day in the region – things are a little calmer and it feels more relaxed. 
“We’ve trialled Locals Day the past two Sundays and it’s worked really well. It gives people a chance to enjoy the beautiful surrounds of our cellar door with lake and forest views over drinks with friends, or make new friends around the fire.

“Everyone is welcome, locals and visitors – at the heart of it, it’s about coming together.”

Two months ago, Bettenay’s introduced a new winter experience: Toasty Tastings by the Fire, that includes toasting French-style nougat over their custom-made fire pit along with tastings of four estate wines and a nougat-inspired liqueur.
“When toasted over the fire, our nougat turns golden brown and forms a really delicious crust, while the inside softens and goes gooey – it’s so good,” she said.
Espresso Nougaretto Martini is an espresso martini made with Bettenay’s coffee nougat liqueur. 

If martinis are not your thing, the Nougaretto hot chocolate is a crowd favourite and there is also a non-alcoholic version for designated drivers. 

Family-owned Bettenay’s was established in 1989 . The family began making French-style soft nougat in 2012 with locally sourced south-west honey. 

It now offers 39 flavours that include classics like French vanilla bean, cranberry and pistachio, and honey and toasted almond.
