Eating

From Spring to Autumn we welcome you for lunch on weekends at The Bresstaurant. You can dine taking in the view of Mount Alexander in our alfresco dining area outside Cellar Door or soaking up the atmosphere of the engine room of Bress at one of the tables in the Winery.

At Bress we want you to feel like we’ve welcomed you to our home for lunch so dining at the Bress Kitchen is a shared table experience, with food served in the same manner. Fresh, quality ingredients, cooked simply is our cooking philosophy.

The Spring 2017 season has welcomed some changes to The Bresstaurant, with our popular 3-course menu returning in typical Bress style.

Lunch is a selection of nutritious and delicious delights, using both the produce from our garden, partnered with some very special morsels from local producers.  A set menu for a steady afternoon graze, with a 1.00pm sitting is $60 per person including shared entree, mains feature a wood fired speciality with sides followed by a delicious dessert.

One weekend per month is dedicated to our more celebratory style feasts with Addam Marks as your host for the day. Our Winemaker Weekends are scheduled for the last weekend of each month and details are found on our events page.

Children are always welcome and are looked after for $15 per child.

Bress is still able to cater very well for those who are gluten intolerant and vegetarian, but offerings for other dietary restrictions are extremely limited due to the structure of our menu and our limited kitchen space.

The Bress Silver Experience

The Bress Silver Experience commences with a guided tour of the Bress gardens and winery.  Guests are then guided through the winemaking process and professional tasting techniques whilst tasting 5 selections from our Silver Chook range of wines. For our groups we take them for a tour of the winery and explain how wine is made.

The Bress Gold Experience

The Bress Gold Experience commences with a guided tour of the Bress gardens and winery.  Guests are then guided through the winemaking process and professional tasting techniques whilst tasting our entire Gold Chook range of wines and a selection of our Silver Chook – all in premium Reiner Burgundy glasses.

We also serve a selection of cheese and smallgoods to enjoy whilst conducting the tasting.

Given that we take these experiences seriously, we ask that your group does the same.  We only accept tour groups between 11:00 am and 12:30 pm as we are committed to lunch service after this.
