An unforgettable wine and food experience, Mudgee’s annual wine and food month festival started as a week-long celebration of the wine industry. Over 40 years later, the event is now one of New South Wales’ longest running wine and food festivals and features a diverse range of events including tastings, trivia, dinners and more.
While there are many signature events of the month-long celebration, each participating winery will generally offer their own unique experience, ranging from food and wine pairing, special tastings, platters, and tasting flights.
