Hollydene Estate Wines incorporating Vines Restaurant is nestled between the world-famous thoroughbred studs of Coolmore and Darley (Godolphin) and located on the edge of the Upper Hunter Valley. Situated on one of the Hunter’s oldest vineyards at Arrowfield, and lying just 10 kilometres to the west of Jerrys Plains and 20km east of the pretty little hub of Denman, the winery is one of the Hunter Valley’s best kept secrets. Offering breath-taking views across the expansive Wollemi National Park, the Estate provides an ideal break from the highway drive – whether it is for coffee, food, beer or wine tasting.
With an emphasis on showcasing regional and local produce, and Paddock to Plate being at the centre of our restaurant’s philosophy, the Estate offers modern rustic Australian dining 7 days a week as well as a unique venue for business meetings, weddings and large and small group functions. We also offer off-site catering.
Our wine is also different and is grown locally on 3 of the oldest vineyards in the Upper Hunter. Besides the Hunter stalwarts Semillion, Chardonnay, Verdelho and Shiraz in the reds, the Italian variety Sangiovese and the Spanish variety Tempranillo are both grown at our Wybong vineyard, as is the white Gewurtztraminer. Our wines are available for tasting at our cellar door and can also be purchased on line and through our Wine Club memberships. (see our website for details https://www.hollydeneestate.com/).
We aim to provide a complete wine and dine experience where families and friends, couples and groups can relax, take in the views, and learn about the wine making process, vineyard and local history. With the use of timbers from the original Bowman’s Crossing Bridge that once crossed the Hunter River at Jerry’s Plains, and turpentine timber from the original wharf at Goat Island, Sydney, the architecturally designed building maintains a distinct respect for the property’s long history and its surrounds.
We have ample elderly, disabled and pram parking, Tesla charging stations and menus to suit every budget. We are family friendly and our very spongy Sir Walter lawn is a great space for the kids to play while you relax and enjoy the vista.
A one of-a-kind destination, Hollydene Estate is perfect for travellers to drop in as well as for local families to come and relax with the added advantage that nowhere else in the area offers the combination of Cellar Door and Restaurant.
We are open daily from 8.30am for breakfast and lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday nights.
