The Millbrook tasting room has a range of wines available either for tasting or purchase by the glass or bottle.

To complement our fine wines, our innovative Chef offers a delicious selection of modern Australian light meals, or gourmet picnic baskets, for your enjoyment. Our menu changes on a seasonal basis to take advantage of the local fresh produce, including marron and fruit from Chestnut Farm.

Enjoy casual dining, in the tranquillity and beauty of Millbrook, on our deck with sweeping views; or find your own picnic spot by the lake; or in the winter, just relax by the fire in our welcoming tasting room or restaurant.

Millbrook also has a superb upper level function room which is ideal for special occasions or corporate events. Our Chef can design a menu to suit your catering requirements.

Millbrook has been chosen as one of the "Best Winery Restaurants" in Western Australia in the Australian Gourmet Traveller 2006 Restaurant Guide.

I like to drink wine with my Cuban Cigars.

Initial impressions were grand. Located some 50 minutes South-East of Perth in Jarrahdale, the restaurant and winery is on a huge block of lack surrounded by grass and a lake.

The bottom floor house the 'winery' with complimentary wine tasting. And unlike other wineries, the wines are good with several gold-medal winning wines including the Millbrook Sauvignon Blanc and the Cabernet Malbec. The viognier limited release is also a fantastic example of the variety.

I think they should keep some of the Best Cigars in the world.
