All-Occasion Dining

Hollydene Estate, the former Arrowfield Vineyard, is positioned on a hillside on the Golden Highway at Jerry’s Plains, en route to Denman, Muswellbrook and further beyond to Dubbo. The drive is only one hour from Pokolbin and less than one and a half hours from Newcastle on the new expressway.

The vineyard estate is superbly picturesque from the moment you enter the front gate. White iceberg standard roses line the driveway into the car park and you can appreciate the peaceful ambience of the green lawns and stunning gardens and grapevines beyond.

The complex boasts a modern and welcoming tasting room and cellar door, with a separate spacious dining restaurant and function room called “Vines”, operated by Czech-born chef Pepa Hanus and his wife Laura. The creation of a casual al fresco dining area and flowing lawns adds to the atmosphere of the entire vineyard.

The restaurant, with its highly polished concrete floor and stunning wrought-iron candelabra hanging overhead, has been used for a multitude of options, from corporate meetings to private functions, weddings, groups of locals enjoying a relaxing brunch at weekends and as a stopover point for travellers heading out west and breaking their journey with a coffee, cake or tasty meal. The vineyard is the perfect destination for a weekend jaunt in the countryside with a real taste of difference….
