About Russo Estate Winery & Restaurant

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-clothed tables, or take a seat alfresco and feel the balmy breezes. With a Modern Australian menu brimming with choice, expect stunningly plated starters such as mushroom, black truffle and Parmesan arancini, served with aioli; before a memorable main of housemade gnocchi gorgonzola, with bacon, snow peas, asparagus, herbs, cream sauce and pecorino, best enjoyed with a glass of estate red. Be sure to leave room for a decadent dessert of baked cheesecake, strawberries and double cream.

Amazing chef
When I bother to go out for dinner, I want it to be outstanding. Otherwise, I’d rather stay home. This is what I’m after.
Delicious amazing food, great ambiance.

Fabulous. Thank you.


Great night out!
Lovely staff delicious food outstanding wine can't ask for more!


Delightful experience
Wasn't sure about Rosso Estate, however on arrival it looked very nice, sadly, we weren't greeted at the door, however, found our way to our table, and glad we did. The food was really delicious, although one order wasn't met, but the offered meal was nice. The view from the windows is lovely, and we had a really enjoyable evening.


Lunch wine and dessert were amazing surrounded by great views of the vineyard. Great and friendly staff. Looking forward to another visit and will recommend this place to family and friends.
