Fox n Grapes, Upper Moutere

Hidden in the Upper Moutere is an awesome venue.  Located on the grounds of the Moutere Hills Vinneyard is the Fox n Grapes Wine Bar.   Open on Friday evenings, locals are loving this hidden delight.  We were lucky to be staying in the area, with a Friday night included in our stopover, therefore we were not going to argue with local knowledge recommending this as the venue for Friday Night dinner & drinks.

Loved how the family were your hosts for the evening and we were surprised at how busy this little venue was.   What a great idea to convert an old hops barn into an awesome venue!   With tables, lounge area and bar stools there’s something here for everyone.   Subtle lighting, highlights the wooden interior.   On a cold winters night, this venue was not only warmly inviting but very homely in its feel.   Those family members who were operating the venue tonight were simply awesome.  Personalised friendly helpful service.  Going out of their way to make your experience even more pleasurable, even if that meant sharing a drink with patrons at the bar.  Loved that touch!I chose the lamb salad which was absolutely devine.  I’m not a big beetroot fan, however, combined with the lamb and salad, plus not too much beetroot, I have to admit, it did partner well with the overall dish.

Hubby tried the Scotch Fillet and loved it…..

How delicious does this beef and fried potatoes look?   Like a roast vege salad – don’t tell Hubby he actually had a salad :).

We were lucky this worked into a Friday night, however it if doesn’t for you, make sure you visit the Moutere Hills Vineyard and Cafe.  Overall the whole venue has had a lot of thought and hard work put into it.   Their wines are certainly worth tasting, very nice.  Stop by for a visit, you won’t be disappointed.
