Russo Estate Winery & Restaurant Overview

Enjoy a chilled glass of wine and fine fare overlooking the beautiful vineyard and waterfall at Russo Estate Winery & Restaurant on Holden Road in Diggers Rest. This elegant family-owned establishment delivers sweeping views of the vines through a full glass frontage while dining indoors at crisp white clothes tables, or take a seat alfresco and feel the balmy breezes. With a Modern Australian menu brimming with lunch and dinner choices, expect stunningly plated starters such as scallops and potato cake with chives, crème fraiche and Yarra Valley caviar; before a main affair of grilled pork cutlet with braised lentils, potato fondant, mussels, chorizo and apple cider jus. Be sure to leave room for a decadent dessert of Russo Gaitime – crunchy nut praline honeycomb and Anglais sauce.
