Food & Wine
Casa Luna Gourmet Accommodation is a food lover’s haven. The library in the lounge/dining room is over-flowing with a wonderful collection of cookbooks, collected by Gwenda over a lifetime of joyful eating and cooking, especially the food of Italy. The style at Casa Luna is influenced by many trips to this favorite country.
The Italians say – “At table you never grow old”. Join the table at Casa Luna and live in the moment!
Casa Luna is a member of Slow Food, the movement founded in Italy as an antidote to the universal proliferation of fast food. Slow Food’s philosophy advocates an unhurried life, beginning at the table. It promotes biodiversity in food supply, education in taste and the protection of food heritage, including endangered products and dishes. It encourages the enjoyment of dining with friends and family.

The King Valley and Victoria’s High Country are blessed. And so are the guests at Casa Luna Gourmet Accommodation.
Dinner choices are up to you. Choose either the full gourmet experience, of 4 courses matched to King Valley wines, a lighter 2 course meal, or more simple options such as pasta and salad, antipasto and cheese, etc., for occasions when you may have enjoyed lunch out. Special dinners are held in La Piazza, the al fresco wood-fired kitchen, where guests enjoy the flavour of wood-cooked dishes, at the beautiful communal dining table.
Picnic hampers can be ordered to be enjoyed at Lake William Hovell, Paradise Falls, Powers Lookout, or even to take to the historic Swanpool Cinema on weekends. Afternoon tea can be ordered as well, to be enjoyed on the patio, in your room or in the guest lounge/dining room.
