Celebrating the wines of Mudgee in country style

Grapes have been grown in the Mudgee region in central western New South Wales for around 160 years. 

Such is Mudgee's love affair with the wine grape that it is home to a wine and food festival that runs over a whole month. 

The Mudgee Wine + Food Festival, which dates back to 1979, will be held from September 7 to October 7 having grown impressively over four decades.

I tasted several delicious Mudgee cabernets last night thanks to David Cumming of Define Wine, an indefatigable marketer of the region. 

Stars included familiar names like Hungtington Estate 2014 Special Reserve Cabernet and Robert Stein 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, along with lesser-known names like organic duo 2016 Guneemooroo and Vinfera 2016 (my standout).

These wines, along with wines and food from all of the Mudgee region, will be on show during the 40th Mudgee Wine + Food Festival. 
  
The following signature events for the festival will be complemented by a diverse range of experiences at each of Mudgee’s cellar doors during the month.
