Regional dining at it’s best

The modern farmhouse restaurant takes in sweeping views of the certified organic & biodynamic Tinja property, nestled among classic Mudgee hillscapes and Lowe vineyards.

 

The extensive kitchen gardens, orchards and grazing farmland welcome you on arrival and form the basis of the experience at Zin House. What we don’t grow ourselves we source from our neighbours and producers across the region.

 

The dining experience is designed to reflect things we hold dear – taking time over good food and wine with those we care about, service that is warm and personable but not obtrusive, comforts with a little luxury and never ever having a time limit on your table.

Dining Experience

Zin House Long Lunch & Dinner

The pace is relaxed, with time to wander the extensive food gardens or watch the sun set over the Mudgee hills.

 

The food and courses are plentiful, five full courses showcasing seasonal produce grown in our gardens or sourced across the region. Prepared by head chef Nathaniel Destefano, the food continues Zin’s guiding principles of authenticity, generosity and quality – balanced with his refined and technique driven approach.

 

The (optional) matched wines, selected by David Lowe, take things up another notch. Paired with the flavours of each course, wines include those from Lowe’s museum stock, as well as our favourite producers across Mudgee, Orange and in between.

 

Numbers are limited but time is not, we don’t turn tables and recommend you allow a minimum of three hours to dine with us.

Lunch starts from twelve and dinner from 6pm. We welcome you to arrive beforehand to stroll through the gardens or enjoy a glass outside as you watch the sunset, or take the time between courses to do so.

 

Five courses are $125 pp.
Matched wines are $65pp.

Example menu

The menu at Zin always starts with what we grow, as it is the garden that inspires what we cook, and when.

 

Head chef Nathaniel and his team work hand in hand with head gardener Corola Kay to develop and prepare food that is not only delicious, but reflects the whole cycle – what we grow, how we grow it and the impact it has.

 

The set menu allows us to curate this food journey at it’s best, which is why that is what we do solely.

 

The courses are then matched with wines that lift the whole experience. Taking into account each of the delicate flavours, David’s wine matches come tempered by decades of experience.

 

Please note the menu changes regularly with season and availability, the following is an example.
