About Vines Restaurant at Hollydene Estate

Vines Restaurant at Hollydene Estate presents a unique and inviting dining experience on the edge of the Upper Hunter Valley. Located on the site of the historic Arrowfield Winery, this award-winning restaurant is one of the region’s best-kept secrets. With a distinct respect for the property’s long history, the timbers from the original nearby Bowman’s Crossing Bridge are a stunning feature of the restaurant and cellar door. Unwind over a glass from the Estate’s 17 varieties of wine and a mezze platter; then peruse a menu focused on fresh and seasonal local produce, with tempters like pappardelle pasta, lemon, ricotta cream, mixed mushroom and kale ragu, shaved pecorino and truffle oil. Those seeking a stunning location for a private function or celebration, Vines Restaurant has it all.
