An easy three-and-a-half-hour drive northwest of Sydney through the Blue Mountains, the Mudgee wine region is a favorite among nature and food and wine lovers for its beauty, heritage and world class produce. Mudgee is situated on the Cudgegong River and is surrounded by rolling green hills. Rich in colonial history, this wine-producing area includes the towns and villages of Mudgee, Gulgong, Rystone, and Kandos.
The region has a rich gold rush heritage and World Heritage wilderness including Wollemi National Park, home to the rare and prehistoric Wollemi pine.

Mudgee’s altitude, continental climate and well-drained soil make it an excellent region for a wide range of varietals and is well known for Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
