If the first thing you associate with wine isn’t “Mudgee” then we’re here to make sure it is! The colourful country town is located 270 kms northwest of Sydney and is home to over a dozen wineries, tempting all wine enthusiasts to visit at least once (or twice!) in their life.
Short Sheep Micro-Winery
From the technical aspects of growing and pruning a grape vine, to filling up a wine bottle, you’ll learn about the wine making process from the very start at the Short Sheep Micro-Winery. We hear the Reserve Du Patron Shiraz is a must try for vino tinto lovers.
Overlooking a gorgeous mountain range, taste some of the finest selection of Australian wine and cheese in one of most tranquil places in the country. One of the most talked about Mudgee wineries, the vineyard produces some excellent types of wine, both red and white, including Shiraz, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc!
Tip: Book a table for lunch at The Zin House next door for the ultimate in ‘paddock to plate’ dining
Moothi Estate Winery
One of the highest vineyards in the region, you’ll be hooked early on in the wine tasting at Moothi Estate. Boasting enthusiastic hosts who are passionate about sharing their extensive wine knowledge with you, listen closely while sampling some of their best drops. A fan of Pinot Grigio? You’ll want to stop in here!
Burnbrae Vineyard and Winery
We’ll set the scene for you. It’s a sunny Saturday and you’re sitting on the veranda of Burnbrae Winery with a glass of wine in your hand overlooking the colourful vineyard. The live music echoes through the background while you and your friends enjoy each other’s company and take in that refreshing country air.
The Comfort Inn Aden Mudgee is the perfect location to base yourself before you set off on your adventure to all these beautiful vineyards.
