Absolutely, yes and we are happy to do a little tasting with you during your stay.
Our 2022 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon (The Old Block) and our 2023 Rosé are now released and available for purchase in our online shop.
The 2023 red wine vintage is safely tucked away in French oak barrels until sometime in winter 2024. In addition to The Old Block we will feature a french style Shiraz from locally sourced grapes.
The 2023 olive harvest provided us with almost 10 tons of fruit. The cold pressed oil was filtered and tested, with the official EVOO classification received from the DPI. We freshly decant it from large vats into 500ml bottles and 3l tins. and it is available online, at the farm and through various stockists.
Yes, but please be aware that all dams are freely accessible and not fenced in. You will be greeted and visited by our dogs, Leo and Hunter who are very friendly so be prepared for a lick attempt and a pat request from either of them.
Kids are absolutely welcome in The Cottage, one of the reasons why we furnished one of the bedrooms with King Singles. We also have some board games available and they can help to feed the animals and check for eggs from the hens. Please bring your own cot for your tiny ones; there is a high chair available if required.
We are a working farm with our own animals, tempting neighbouring grazing paddocks and machinery under way. So to avoid trouble for your and our animals we made the difficult decision to not allow pets.
Well, it would be nice if you could keep it a bit shorter during your stay. We purely rely on rain water and it is a precious resource on a farm, especially during a drought. The other reason is that the waste water is managed through septic tank systems which work better with less water coming through.
You sure can. We actually think it tastes better than town water and many of our guests have confirmed that.
It is 15 mins to Mudgee town centre and traffic is never an issue around here. You can get to most Cellar Doors within 20-25 mins. Some wine tour operators will also pick you up for a fee from the accommodation if you want to leave your car behind. Some guests have hired a cab as shuttle and then explored the wineries via hired eBikes.
Fun fact: if you come up from Sydney, you will pass the last traffic light in Lithgow and the next one will be in Dubbo. Enjoy the ride!
Old Grattai Road is a gravel road that is absolutely fine to drive on with any normal car. Coming from Mudgee, you can take the scenic route by turning off Hill End Road shortly after you pass the 'Locality of Erudgere' sign and enjoy about 8 km on the dirt road. Or you continue along Hill End Road for 12 km and then turn left for another 2.5km on Old Grattai Road (look out for the 'Observatory' sign).
