Restaurant and Larder
The Chrismont Restaurant is the realisation of a 20-year dream to create a dining destination that blends our contemporary King Valley winemaking with family hospitality based on authenticity, generosity and flavour.
With a menu that blends the seasons with inspirations from time-honoured family recipes, our food reflects our Sicilian and northern Italian cultures, and is designed for shared or individual day-time dining.
“At Chrismont, our menu is about simplicity, flavour and real food. We greet people the way we’d like to be greeted, and extend our warm hospitality. It’s not just about the food; it’s nourishment for the body and soul.”
The ever-changing a la carte menu is about celebrating traditional dishes but with a touch of the new techniques we see evolving with success in the restaurants of Milan, Florence and Bologna.
The Larder is stocked regularly and offers house-made flavours for visitors to create antipasti and dessert plates at home, including Sicilian pickled melanzane, cumquats in syrup, chocolate spicy walnut biscotti, and orange and ruby grapefruit marmellata.
Named the King Valley’s ‘Cellar Door with BEST Food’ by Gourmet Traveller WINE 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 and STAR Cellar Door in 2016.
