Moutere Hills Vineyard

The history of this setting is apparent in the artistically arranged old pieces of farm machinery scattered among the gardens. The corrugated iron-clad building is surrounded by decks overlooking the neighbouring vines. There is plenty of space both within the cafe and outside on the grass to relax, and transparent blinds make indoor dining enjoyable all year round. The menu is eclectic and full of surprises, from Turkish burgers and nasi goreng to Cajun prawns.

Things To Know
The current owners are Rusty Rayne and Lisa Goodson, who took over in 2012 after leaving the police force. While the oldest plantings go back to 1993, the couple have undertaken further plantings over the past two years. They have also re-established the rustic wine bar, Fox n Grapes, in the old hops barn. It’s open on Friday evenings, with meals from 5pm-8pm.

Our Pick
The Moutere Hills Chardonnay is beautifully rounded with hints of smoky oak.
