leave a comment »

Adam Pizzini, one of the most exciting young Chefs in the North East together with Dal Zotto Estate Wines, has launched an exciting new concept in dining in the King Valley wine region – Rinaldo’s of The King Valley.

Right alongside Dal Zotto’s new cellar door in the heart of Whitfield, Rinaldo’s is a celebration of the wonderful bounty of flavours the King Valley has to offer. The best of the local produce will be sourced to compliment the finest wines from the King Valley region.

The authentic King Valley experience doesn’t stop there – the restaurant is an exciting conversion of an original tobacco shed whilst the historic Whitfield Police station building now serves as Dal Zotto’s relocated cellar door.

Drawing on his Italian heritage and experience working in both Sydney and Brisbane, Adam has developed seasonal lunch and dinner menus carefully matched to an extensive list of local wines. His hand-picked team of experienced and innovative chefs and waiting staff are committed to a unique dining experience.

Rinaldo’s will also act as an art gallery of bold interpretive paintings. The current pieces were painted by renowned Benalla artist, Tony Flint. (Click photo to enlarge)

Of course the local folk who remember Adam’s great cooking at the Mountainview Hotel a few years ago are sure to become regular patrons of Rinaldo’s nestled in the foothills of the King Valley at Whitfield.

Guests can also enjoy special functions, events, and of course, traditional Italian hospitality. The restaurant can cater to 60 people inside and 30 in the outside garden section. Call (03) 57 298 000 and make a reservation

Dal Zotto Estate cellar door has undergone a dramatic transformation! Now located on the main road in Whitfield, the refurbished cellar door is a welcoming, contemporary space where you can taste superb wines while enjoying the exquisitely beautiful King Valley backdrop.

Visitors to the Dal Zotto cellar door have always attested to the warm Italian hospitality they are treated to, a quality instilled by Otto and Elena Dal Zotto into every aspect of their family business. That tradition will now continue in the new, more convenient location. Visitors can taste and purchase from Dal Zotto Estate’s extensive range of award-winning wine assisted by friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Opening alongside Rinaldo’s restaurant, this formidable combination will represent the new heart of the exciting King Valley wine region and is a must for both wine enthusiasts and valley residents alike.

Visit them both at 4861 Wangaratta-Whitfield Road, Whitfield. Telephone (03) 57 298 321 Fax (03) 57 298 490 or visit
