Forsters Moutere Hills

Forsters restaurant is located at Moutere Hills Winery, just outside the artisan village of Upper Moutere. 

The newly renovated restaurant has a lovely relaxed, warm feel, featuring reclaimed timber and stunning views through the sliding glass doors. It's an idyllic setting to relax over a long lunch or dinner: outside in the sheltered garden or enjoy the views and atmosphere from inside the modern and light restaurant. 

Moutere Hills is a boutique winery, producing a varied range of wines. Forsters run the tasting room so you can sample some wines before choosing the perfect match for your food. 

Priding themselves on offering a creative menu, matched with excellent service, the Forsters team look forward to welcoming you all.
