Where to start with over 35 Cellar Doors to chose from? Check them out online via the link below and have a chat to us if you want more tips on where to go...
It's not just about wine, there is also beer, gin and some food on the way. We can help with shuttle to and from pick-up points , so you don't need a designated driver. Contact us to assist with bookings and tips for operators we have worked with before.
Local produce is the hero at Food & Farm Dining 20 mins down the road from us in the historic Gold & Fleece Hotel with a unique choice of fine dining or classic pub food. Or enjoy a long lunch amongst the vines at The Barn, The Zin House, or Pipeclay Pumphouse. Breakfast? Alby & Esthers or Milbrie are always a winner!
Roll up your sleeves and learn some tricks of the trade with Tamara at The Little Cooking School. We had lots of fun with friends there a few times and sitting down afterwards and dig into a delicious meal is soooo rewarding. Check out the link below to book directly.
Get fresh local produce for a cold platter from places like High Valley Cheese and Robert Stein Winery. For meaty mains shop at S&S Meats or Perry Street Meats and get the staples at Woolies around the corner. Both our accommodations have fully equipped kitchens and a BBQ - shop ahead and make the most of it.
Does this look like retail therapy? It surely was when Norbert finally got his RMs after looking at them for 15 years. So, support our local businesses, whether its Whatever Mudgee to style your home or Blowes to style yourselves, and many more...
Various markets are held in Mudgee and neighbouring towns. Farmers Markets are usually on the third Saturday of the month from 8:30 to 12:30. Check out the link below for dates when any of the markets are on.
The Arts Precinct, Rosby's Sculptures in the Garden (Anna knows all about that) and other exhibitions and events extend the Mudgee experience beyond good food and wine. Keep looking up and around to enjoy the many architectural testimonies of our 19th century foundation years.
We offer a tour of the vineyard and the olive grove and tell you about the annual cycle from budburst through harvest to the final produce. You will also hear a bit about the history of the property and our Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) will be available for tasting.
There are so many beautiful spots to discover once you wander around the property. Picnic baskets are provided in both, the Cottage and the Retreat for you to fill with your own goodies and hopefully a bottle of our wine.
The best times are early mornings and of course the golden afternoon hours when the hills around us start glowing. We have mowed some tracks but feel free to explore as long as you wear solid shoes please.
Gulgong, Rylstone, Kandos are all worth a visit to discover some charming little shops (eg Folkologie in Rylstone), eateries and pure country bliss. Or extend your radius to Dubbo via Wellington for a solid day trip and treat the kids (and yourself) with a visit to their fantastic Zoo.
The Drip (above) is about 45 mins drive and surely worth it. In summer hit the waters of the Cudgegong Water Park or Lake Burrendong (that is if you don't like to swim with our yabbies in the dams). Or maybe take your mountain bike along Black Soil Road and explore the valley behind us.
Drive out to Hills End then down to Sallys Flat and back via Windeyer with a stop at the Gold & Fleece Hotel for authentic country pub food. Or extend the loop via Sofala, Kandos, Rylstone and Lue. If you come up from Bathurst, take the Turondale Road or if you head to the Hunter go via Wollar and take the Bylong Valley Way.
You can do a 30 minute walk or 4 minute drive to have a unique experience with John whose passion for astronomy led him to build this extraordinary facility. Bookings are essential to avoid disappointment.
The Lo-Fi version is to step out into the paddocks from your accommodation and this is what you can see on a clear night. There is a reason why John picked this area as we are away from town and any light pollution from mines.
