The Mudgee Region is a 3.5 hour drive from Sydney in Central NSW, has more than 150 years of winemaking history and is the third largest grape-growing region in NSW with around 40 cellar doors. It produces excellent Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, is the modern home of Australia’s first Chardonnay plantings, as well as Italian varietals Sangiovese and Barbera, which thrive in the Mediterranean climate.
