Sunday 29th October - Happy Halloween!  Monster face bread making class for kids

Bring your kids in to learn about making bread with a scary twist… monster faces! While the parents relax in the restaurant, the class will be held in the scary dungeon (wine cellar), each participant gets to decorate their own bread loaf to look like a scary monster face! We then take the bread to the oven and cook it for the kids to then eat with some delicious pumpkin soup, followed by a scoop of pumpkin ice cream! 

$30 per head for each kid, starts 1130am while Mum and Dad relax on the deck or at the tasting bar. Book through Boooo!!!

Friday 3rd November Contentious Character 1st Birthday –
An Intimate Celebration with a Twist

Join the Contentious Four for an intimate night of great food, wine and entertainment as we celebrate one year since we opened the cellar door and kitchen. We’ll start on the lawn at sunset with sparkling, lively conversation and a few tunes. Then as the sun goes down we’ll move in to our table, with glorious views, for a classic Australian native degustation menu designed by Tom, our Culinary Director in conjunction with paired wines chosen from the Contentious Four’s own cellar, by Jeremy, our winemaker. Some rather surprising and contentious entertainment, along with live music for dancing, will feature throughout the night. Numbers are limited to create the contentious intimacy we seek for this special night. $150 per head all inclusive or with drop off and pick up transport $190
