Contentious Character Vineyard, Winery, Cellar-door and Kitchen

Bars Produce Restaurant and Cafe Wineries

Contentious Character is a contemporary vineyard estate with winery, cellar door, kitchen, and function facilities. They offer a unique tasting experience with their extensive range of aged vintages, from their Founders Museum collection.

“The Lambert family made high quality wines with great skill and sensitivity.” – Halliday Wine Companion, 2017.

These aged wines have matured exceptionally well with cellaring and now present a mellow complexity, way beyond their value. They are complemented by the new releases of recent vintages, under the Contentious Character brand.

Look across the vineyard and surrounding countryside, while their kitchen serves up a fresh, local, sharing menu, including wood fired dishes, and charcuterie, all paired to the wines. That’s hardly contentious!

Varieties: Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz.
