Read our reviews on the Australian Good Food & Travel Guide website.
Just wanted to pass on our sincere thanks for a wonderful afternoon at Vines celebrating our daughters 21st birthday with family on Sunday. We were so impressed with the staffs attention to personal service from time of booking (which kept changing numbers etc.!!) to actually enjoying our lunch. From the special touch with being greeted with umbrellas etc. on a very rainy Sunday, to the wonderful meal and even as far as dividing up the cake into suitable take-away portions was over and above expectations! The wait staffs attention to our table was just the right amount, not intrusive but seemed a real willingness to make sure everything was OK!
Thanks to all the staff that were involved, the food was amazing, all guests commented on the quality and presentation (and most had been to Vines in the past 6 mths) so just wanted to pass on our thanks for a great experience!
All the best, am sure will be back soon!
Kind regards, Fiona”

“I would like to thank you for your amazing work in assisting Cameron and I make our wedding a beautiful and joyous occasion for us, our families and friends. Your organisation skills and professionalism leading up to the day and on the day made it easy on cameron and myself which is a credit to you.
Thank you also to those behind the scenes because without them the day would also not have been possible. All of our guests loved the wedding at such a beautiful location with friendly service from you and your staff.
Thank you for making our wedding day a memorable day at a stunning location.
All the best to you with no doubt organising more wedding for more brides and we will no doubt be running into you when we are next at Hollydene.
Thank you to you and the staff at Hollydene.

“This morning we were the first to arrive at your winery and had a beautiful breakfast! Then we took a walk down to see the ducks and vines. There my boyfriend of 3.5 years asked me to be his wife!!! This winery is a place forever etched in my memories x”

"Firstly I would like to compliment the staff on their excellent service. Unfortunately I don't know the name of our waitress, however she was delightful, friendly and caring. Secondly the food was delicious, the menu provided something for everyone, we all tried a different dish and everyone was delighted with their choice. The exposed timbers, high ceiling and beautiful settings create a lovely and friendly ambiance. There is a lovely outdoor dining area as well as beautiful grounds around the cellar door and restaurant"

"I have enjoyed Wicked very very much and a lot of laughter and goods time have been had in its presence. Thank you for such a beautiful wine.
"Dear Staff at Hollydene,
I would just like to say thanks for a great meal and evening.
My brother and family once lived at Denman and my family quite often made the trip along the Golden Hwy to visit, mainly during the first weekend in May for the food and wine weekend.
We had dropped into Arrowfields for tastings and order pickups on most of the above occasions.
They no longer live at Denman but, atleast once a year I get a group together and we stay with Brett and Linda at Two Rivers.
Last weekend we did just that and this time we made our way to Holydene, on the Saturday nite for a meal.
Your menu was fantastic…..we all enjoyed……your staff were excellent….friendly, informative and very helpful…..I had an amazing vanilla milkshake to finish my meal…(this may jog a memory).
We were all very happy with Saturday nite and I just thought some praise should be offered.
Thankyou again and I am sure we will be there next time
"We had a great time at Hollydene, I think it was the highlight of our week away.
Wonderful surroundings, great weather and excellent food.Please thank all the staff for their contribution

From some fans "Thanks you so much for your hospitality last weekend at Hollydene Estate. You and Gary were extremely generous with tour time. It was very unexpected and very much appreciated.
We all learnt so much and saw things we would have otherwise never come across. We were all in awe of the energy you both have and the things you have achieved.
We will be back to your Vines Restaurant thats for sure. Great atmosphere/decor, great food, great staff and of course great company.
Hollydene is an absolute credit to you. I know you say you have a great team but someone has to have the visions and enthusiasm to get the ball rolling"
