Here, you'll be greeted by a warm, inviting atmosphere and sweeping vineyard views.

With its crisp, lively bubbles and hints of brioche and lingering lemon notes, it's a cool-climate Chardonnay sparkling sensation that'll have your taste buds dancing. (Of course, don't forget to try their extensive range while you're there including a lovely 'Annabelle' Crémant de Rosé method traditionelle cabernet & merlot rosé - yum!)

Stop 2: Logan Wines

Next on our itinerary is Logan Wines, a haven for wine enthusiasts seeking something extraordinary. Set against a backdrop of rolling hills, Logan Wines offers a stunning range of wines in their architecturally-designed with floor to ceiling glass, award-winning cellar door. Their 'Vintage M Cuvée' is a standout, boasting a harmonious blend of Chardonnay Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier produced in the traditional method, that delivers complex aromas of wild strawberry, with flavours of marzipan, lemon and green apple. Of course, the cuvée is just one piece of the picture that makes Logan Wines so exceptional, so make sure you try some of their other offerings. Sip, savor, and soak in the panoramic views that make Logan Wines an unforgettable stop on our journey.

Stop 3: Moothi Estate

Prepare for a taste sensation like no other at Moothi Estate, where innovation meets tradition and country comfort. 'Moothi' is a Wiradjuri term meaning 'nest in the hills' which you'll see is aptly named when you soak in the views from the Moothi Estate property. Their Sparkling Rosé showcases an excellent frizzante style with flavours of Turkish delight and fresh cherries which make it the perfect apertif. Enjoy the relaxed ambiance and maybe even grab a bite to eat. Their large verandah offers spectacular views of the vineyards and the Mudgee Region which makes it the perfect place to stop for lunch. Moothi's abundant platters are a favourite of locals and guests alike, showcasing excellent offerings like Mudgee-produced smallgoods & cheeses, accompanied with all the essentials. Joie de vivre!

Stop 4: The Cellar by Gilbert

Nestled in a charming historic building, The Cellar by Gilbert invites you to experience a sparkling revelation in the heart of Mudgee. They have a range of bubbles to tickle everyone's taste buds. Their 2016 Méthode Traditionelle made from Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier & Pinot Noir and spending 50-months on yeast lees, has won many awards, including being awarded 95 points from Halliday Wine Companion. Their 'Pet Nat' range (Petillant Naturel - naturally sparkling) are playful wines that are as effervescent as they are delightful. Their riesling pet-nat has flavours of citrus, lemon curd and great texture. Their rosé pet-nat bursts with watermelon & strawberry leaf on the palate. The Gilbert's Pet-Nat range is a fun and accessible choice for those looking to explore a different facet of sparkling wine. Outstanding bubbly (not to mention a whole range of other exceptional drops) makes The Cellar by Gilbert a must-stop on your effervescent tour!

Stop 5: Thumbprint Wines

Our journey culminates at Thumbprint Wines, a boutique cellar door that prides itself on handcrafted, small-batch wines. Here, their sparkling range takes centre stage, with three delicious sparkling wines to choose from.

They also have a very special 2014 Vintage Vermentino & Savagnin sparkling which has been bottle fermented for 7 years! The added time on lees has increased the complexity and texture of this wine, making it an irresistible drop. Thumbprint Wines is essential for sparkling lovers, with a range of wines perfect for toasting to the unforgettable moments shared with friends on this sparkling adventure through Mudgee. As you bid farewell, take with you not only a bottle of this effervescent gem but also the memories of a day well spent.
