Described as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Mudgee’s Wine Region, Logan’s award-winning Tasting Room has been wowing visitors for more than a decade.
Perched elegantly on the top of a hill overlooking the vines, the Tasting Room’s clean architectural design perfectly frames the stunning views from every angle. It’s the perfect spot to taste wine from Logan’s five ranges, all made from Logan’s grapes grown in the NSW Central Ranges (Mudgee and Orange).
Winemaker Peter Logan is inspired by the character of rich fruity Australian wines and the balance and structure of Old-World wines. His winemaking philosophy represents a hybrid of these two styles – wines that ooze Australian fresh fruit flavours whilst embodying European-style balance and finesse.
Logan is located just 15 kilometres from Mudgee along the Castlereagh Highway. Travelling from Sydney, Logan is the first winery visible (on your left) and leaving Mudgee, they're your last wine stop for about 160 kilometres.
