Visit the Cellar Door of the vineyard that has become home to New South Wales's best rosés, and other award-winning wines. The family continues pushing the boundaries through experimentation with new varieties of grapes and blends, always striving for that 'perfect' bottle.
Burrundulla was established almost 200 years ago by the Cox family in Mudgee. In 1814 Governor Lachlan Macquarie ordered Lt. William Cox of the N.S.W. Corps to build a road across the Blue Mountains from Penrith to Bathurst, a distance of 101 miles, after learning of the agricultural significance of these fertile plains. With a team of convicts numbering 30, Cox completed the task in just 6 months, an engineering feat not likely to ever be achieved again.
In 1845 grapes were planted at "Burrundulla" to try and replicate the success the Cox family was having with their vines and wines at their other property at Mulgoa. As well as grapes "Burrundulla" was producing some of Australia's best wool and in 1878 won the Grand Prix in Paris for the best wool in the world.
With the resurgence of grape growing in the region in 1993 "Burrundulla" returned to planting vines with a ten year contract to supply Rothbury Estate. The first five years saw Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon, Merlot and Shiraz planted followed more recently by Tempranillo, Riesling, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot.
