Our menu is inspired by our own family gatherings, sharing food, wine, company, the beauty of our landscape and the bounty of our Estate Grown produce.

We grow our own lamb, wheat, honey, citrus, seasonal vegetables & herbs. All our Estate produce is sustainably produced with minimal intervention and zero food miles in a reflection of the place it was grown and the people who made it.

Executive Chef, Jarrod Smith, has a passion for exploration and creativity. In addition to our estate produce, we source the best of the season's harvest, from far and wide, to enhance a vibrant, ever changing menu.

                                Do yourself a favour and have a meal at Lake Moodemere. The food is delicious and the setting is gorgeous. And, of course, it is all accompanied by great wine and friendly staff.

                                Have been wanting to come here for some time. Firstly Michael and Belinda are both so hospitable. Wine tasting very nice and informative. Lunching under the trees overlooking the water was beautiful. Food was sensational. Lamb was delish! Enjoy and live life 🥂

                                Beautiful winery estate, which we didn't know existed. The wine tasting experience was fun and educational and lunch was spectacular. The service all round was brilliant. Would recommend everyone visit Lake Moodemere Estate, if in the Rutherglen region. Oh yes, the wines are beautiful too.

                                Absolutely wonderful as always sitting by the lake eating incredible food with wonderful hosts what could be better, this time we had the Mozzarella & tomatoes salad, and the chicken terrine for entrees, followed by the fantastic lamb ragu Gnocchi & Bouillabaisse, then the chocolate pudding & affogato for dessert. Accompanied by wonderful lake moodamere sparkling red. If you have lunch here you are always in for a wonderful meal and day the Chambers are incredible hosts.

                                We were met at the door by Belinda and ushered in to a wine tasting with Michael. Such a lovely couple, very willing to attend to our every need, not always an easy task with seven women. A lovely, casual atmosphere, delicious food and of course , beautiful wine. Overall, a very enjoyable afternoon. Will definitely be back, bringing more family and friends to enjoy the experience. The only thing that could have made it better was to have The Moodemere Quartet playing in the background.

                                Idyllic setting by the lake. Enjoyed a delicious lamb dish straight from the paddock and the nectarine tart was divine. Highly recommend a visit to this winery.

                                Started with a wine tasting with the wine maker, some excellent wines. Lunch was outside near the lake, a wonderful setting. Our party of 4 all had the 2 course lunch, and the food was delicious. Service was great, and would highly recommend.

                                We had a stunning afternoon at Lake Moodemere Estate. We were seated overlooking the lake, with plenty of space between tables. Our toddlers were able to roam and play, and the food and wine was phenomenal. We waited for each course with bated breath! We left feeling happy, relaxed and grateful to have this little paradise on our doorstep. We'll definitely be back!

                                Amazing service from the moment we entered. Great family run winery who were all on hand to answer any questions about their menu and produce. The food tasted great and fresh hence the lack of food pictures, would highly recommend if you are visiting the area. Can’t wait to come back to check the summer menu out. Loveable doggies running around for the added bonus.
