Food + Drink
Winemakers and local producers across the Mudgee Region are extraordinarily passionate about impressing your palate.
Winemakers seek to make each wine unique and compelling. They achieve this through diversity of climate, soil and wine making technique (and an unadulterated love for what they do). This provides an unparalleled opportunity to sample great wines with personality and character while relaxing in a sophisticated yet peaceful and welcoming country setting away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
In Mudgee Region, you will discover older wine styles fondly remembered from the past right alongside exciting new wines relatively unknown here, yet are household names in other parts of the world.
Most importantly, you’ll meet people who adore what they do. You’ll find the unmistakable stamp of concentration, character and European finesse demonstrated in our wines, carefully matched to complement local produce at one of our region’s many impressive eateries.
Your taste buds will never quite be the same after sampling Mudgee Region’s locally foraged produce. The best thing is, there’s more than one way to get into it.
