Contentious Character is a contemporary vineyard estate with winery, cellar door, kitchen, and function facilities. They offer a unique tasting experience with their extensive range of aged vintages, from their Founders Museum collection.
"The Lambert family made high quality wines with great skill and sensitivity." – Halliday Wine Companion, 2017.
These aged wines have matured exceptionally well with cellaring and now present a mellow complexity, way beyond their value. They are complemented by the new releases of recent vintages, under the Contentious Character brand.
Look across the vineyard and surrounding countryside, while their kitchen serves up a fresh, local, sharing menu, including wood fired dishes, and charcuterie, all paired to the wines. That's hardly contentious

Le Tres Bon
Chef Christophe and Josephine are passionate about fresh, local produce, which Bungendore’s providores put at chef’s fingertips, including organic meat. Some would call his style “slow food”; however, the much older French term terroir is a better description. It means “a sense of place”, the idea that a region’s climate, soil and physical shape of the landscape add distinctive flavours to its agricultural produce. This, Christophe believes, is the difference between a meal and a lasting gastronomic experience. French cooking classes are conducted throughout the year, as well a food & wine tours to France and New Caledonia.
