Regional dining at it’s best

The Zin House restaurant, overlooking the organic & biodynamic Lowe vineyard and farm, is open for lunch Thursday to Monday, and currently for dinner Friday & Saturday.


Seasonal, local, slow. Feel at home in the modern farmhouse with our set menu regional dining experience; heroing home & local grown produce, with time to wander the extensive food gardens, meet our chefs, and soak in the views from the open-air hearth.


Numbers are limited but time is not, we don’t turn tables and recommend you allow at least three hours to dine with us. Bookings via the link below are essential.  

Our dining experiences

Our six-course, set menu is plated sharing style, best enjoyed over several hours with good company. The menu starts with what is growing in our gardens, accompanied by local produce from our friends & neighbours.


Prepared by the talented Zin team, the food reflects Kim Currie‘s guiding principles of authenticity, generosity and quality – where food is made from scratch, in a refined yet simple approach.


It is these details that have found The Zin House awarded One Hat in the SMH Good Food Guide Awards annually since 2015.

Food $155 pp | matched wines (optional) $95pp

The food & the wine

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


Our kitchen & garden teams work hand in hand to develop a seasonal menu that reflects the whole cycle – what we grow, how we grow it and the impact it has. Reflecting our favourite way to eat, this produce is then prepared across six full courses, plated sharing style (we do not do à la carte).


To compliment the flavours of each course, these dishes are then paired with optional matched wines by David Lowe to round out the whole experience.


Both these pairings, and our wine list as a whole, celebrate small Australian producers dedicated to organics & biodynamic, just as we are here at Lowe, as well as our friends & neighbours who honour the quality of this local region.


Our menu changes regularly with season & availability, note the following is an example only.
