Mudgee to celebrate in style


With a friendly country ambiance, several excellent eateries and a plethora of cellar doors, Mudgee is an ideal weekend getaway from Sydney. 


The region is the third-largest producer of wine grapes in NSW and there are more than 35 spots for wine tasting, ranging from Logan Wines with a striking glass tasting room overlooking the vineyard to Lowe Wines, where you can taste under the wisteria trees. 

Other gourmet destinations include First Ridge - with a cellar door made entirely of re-purposed shipping containers - Alby and Esthers, a café during the week and a chic wine bar on weekends.



The idea weekend to visit is March 21-22 when the region hosts its annual Mudgee Food & Drink Trail. 

Fourteen of the region’s most picturesque venues will host visitors, serving one or two small dishes carefully prepared to match local beverages.
“The Mudgee Region Food & Drink Trail is constantly evolving,” said Mudgee Wine Association president Jess Chrcek. “The variety and quality of fresh produce, wines and other culinary offerings continues to grow within the Mudgee region. 
“After a tough time with drought and fires, we’ve been lucky to have some beautiful, soaking rain and the landscape is once again looking lush and green. We want to put our thriving region on show and the Food & Drink Trail is the perfect excuse for people to experience and indulge in all things Mudgee.”
As a self-guided trail, the event offers visitors a range of options. A non-alcoholic option is guaranteed at each venue. 

Menu selections include slow-cooked lamb sliders, Wagyu rolls, gourmet mushroom tarts and sesame-crusted fried halloumi. 

Trail Passes are available at www.visitmudgeeregion.com.au or participating venues. Passes are $50, comprising five vouchers, each to be exchanged for one dish and drink.
