Welcome to Clever Polly’s, our OMAKASE restaurant and natural wine shop in West Melbourne. Clever Polly’s opened in 2014 with the intention of bringing something that we felt was missing in our local area- a small, casual, yet intimate place, where we could share new discoveries with our guests; a place of learning through the pleasure of eating and drinking. We have worked hard to build a sense of community around food and wine, whilst supporting small, artisanal farmers and producers, who work in tandem with the land to nurture it. All that we offer is thoughtfully selected and prepared; only food and wine that we love and are proud to share.

For the love of Beaujolais…

Yep, we’re loving our Beaujolais at the moment at Clever Polly’s but this is one of our particular favourites. Made by a tiny producer who shies away from the conventions required to fit in with the DOC laws, he makes a range of wines that fall into the category of Vin de France- each one quirky and unique, with a real sense of personality. There’s even one named after his horse (who works the vineyard), Bistere.

So named because of it’s damp earthiness with late summer fruit notes, this is light and fresh, lovely with a bit of a chill but just as delicious without. It’s delicious in Autumn but we think it’s just as good a way to ease oneself into Spring…
