More than just a place to stay. At The Lane Retreat, we value every connection: whether to the nature that surrounds us, the history of the land, the wines our land produces, to each other and to you. 

Have a taste of our suggested experiences, allowing you to choose the connection right for you and to enhance your stay.


As one of three extensive vineyard estates belonging to the Bimbadgen portfolio, guests of The Lane Retreat can enjoy award-winning dining in Esca Bimbadgen Restaurant, Bimbadgen Wood Fire Pizza and Cellar Door, all located a short 3-minute drive from The Lane Retreat.


Esca Bimbadgen showcases our passion for the Hunter Valley and the abundance of local produce at our doorstep. Featuring an extensive wine list filled with Bimbadgen wines, Esca Bimbadgen exemplifies the unique nature of a winery restaurant. The spectacular entrance suspended above the winery is second only to the view from your table.

Wood Fire Pizza

Relax in our Tuscan-inspired courtyard with a glass of wine and take in the spectacular view from under the shade of our vine-covered pergola. Our chefs have created a menu featuring all your favourite pizza classics and a few modern twists we know you will love. Taste the difference of a perfect crust, smoky flavour and mouth-watering toppings, synonymous with a good wood fire pizza!


For well over a century, Hunter Valley wine growers have refined variety, technique and style to achieve universal recognition and acclaim for its long-lived Semillon, full flavoured Chardonnay and elegant Shiraz. These three classic varieties are the primary focus of Bimbadgen’s Hunter Valley vineyards. Experience the flavours of the Hunter at our Cellar Doors located just a short drive from The Lane Retreat.

Bimbadgen Cellar Door

Situated in a commanding position with magnificent views to the Barrington ranges, the vineyards and our winery production area, Bimbadgen’s contemporary Cellar Door is the perfect immersive experience for a wine tasting. Our Cellar Door tasting experiences start from $10 per person and bookings are required for all groups to ensure availability.

Alter Wines Cellar Door

Created by award winning Bimbadgen winemaker, Richard Done, these boutique wines are an enjoyable alter-ego to Bimbadgen’s wines, complementing the unique cellar door at Emma’s Cottage.
