the countdown is on ....

Hello Everyone, what an exciting last few weeks we’ve had! The countdown to re-opening is well and truly open and like everyone else, I can’t wait for the Beer Gardens to open especially as the sun is just starting to come out of hiding. With that in mind we’ve been seriously busy behind the scenes getting everything ready for when we can first welcome you all back through the doors!

We’ve had some brilliant days coming up with new recipes for the Menu, there is some AMAZING food coming your way including the NEW Motley Cru Mont Blanc Burger.

Mad Frenchman

The best part of coming up with new Food Dishes for The Motley Cru Cafe Bar (now more of Bistro) is getting "JP" our mad Frenchman photographer to come to the Winery and take the most incredible photos of the Food being created in the Vineyard Kitchen by our very own "Motley Cru" Chef Milena. In between shots, he drinks about 5 cups of coffee and has plenty of “fags”... a true Frenchman. JP is a genius at what he does and we always have a good laugh together.

Of course the other positive outcome from these Photography Shoots is the huge amount of Food available at the end of the day .....our signature Paella Dish, The Motley Cru Mont Blanc Burgers, the incredible Dim Sum (steamed Chinese Dumplings), boozy Cream Teas, loaded Nachos, Tandoori Chicken wraps, Tiramisu and Whisky Bread & Butter pudding to name a few!


A Motley Cru favourite ....


It's the delicate fragrance of the fresh Lemon Thyme that transforms this Risotto

Paired with our very popular Sauvignon Blanc “Runner Ducks”

baked camembert

Who can resist a freshly Baked Camembert Cheese drizzled with our very own Honey from the Estate & sprigs of our freshly picked Rosemary served with warm crusty Bread. Heaven!

Pair it with a Glass of our “Flying Start” Shiraz ... There's always a fight amongst the Motley Cru as to who stole the Baked Camembert!


Crushed Meringue with Passionfruit Mascarpone Cream & topped with Raspberries & Raspberry coulis....

Dine in the Vines

Whilst these Photographic Shoots have certainly been no good for the waistline... we’re super pleased with the Menu we’ve created and can’t wait to get back to serving great food with great company amongst the Vines! And speaking of amongst the Vines .....
