Our Restaurant


Margan Wines was established in 1996 and Margan Restaurant opened its doors a decade later. As the pioneers of Agri-Dining in the Hunter Valley we are committed to our ‘estate grown, estate made’ ethos.

We craft our menus around the harvest from our one-hectare kitchen garden & orchard to maintain a hyper-local focus. In addition, we have our own olive trees, free range chickens, beehives and raise our own lambs, all of which is incorporated into our menus.

We love to champion the quality produce of the region and collaborate with our neighbours and farm gate producers for olive oil, poultry, milk and sustainably reared animals. The Hunter Valley used to be an ancient seabed millions of years ago but now is an inland region. So for seafood we source from the coast of Newcastle and Port Stephens and only use sustainable species.

As farmers, we are committed to looking after the land and are certified with Sustainable Winegrowing Australia (first and only HV restaurant and winery). Our accreditation benchmarks us internationally to ISO 14000 for best practice in environmental stewardship. Additionally, we are headed towards carbon neutrality.

With delicious food, goes great wine so we offer a large selection of Margan wines (of course) along with some regional favourites and Australian and International heroes. We align with smaller estate and single vineyard producers and those who, like us also champion Sustainable Farming, Organic and Biodynamic Viticulture.  We look forward to welcoming you soon.
