Itinerary

About Mudgee

Mudgee is the home of organic wine in Australia and is equally well known for having Australia’s oldest sangiovese and barbera vines.  With a growing number of cellar doors – 40+ and increasing – from tucked away tin sheds (Skimstone) to large, sleek designed structures (Logan Wines), it’s enough to whet any wine lover’s appetite.

Mudgee is lovely town to visit.  The historic town has some of the best-preserved buildings in New South Wales, dating back to gold-rush days.  Complemented by wide streets, it’s an attractive and welcoming destination.  Mudgee also has a growing mix of quality cafes, galleries, boutiques and bars.  Roth’s Wine Bar, in the general store that Bob Roth opened in 1923, is said to be Australia’s oldest wine bar.

There’s a burgeoning cafe & food scene. The Mudgee farmer’s market is on the third Saturday of every month and is the “ultimate epicurean show and tell”.  Meet local producers from honey and hazelnuts, pickles and preserves, olives and oils to figs and free-range Ormiston pork.  Guided farm walks are also available each Sunday after the market day, so you can further learn about, taste and take home the wonderful produce from this growing gourmet hub.
