Mudgee Wine Reputation

Mudgee Wine Guide & Map (Download PDF 1MB)

Gone are the days when Mudgee wine was called Mudgee mud. That reputation has been replaced with many award-winning wines and a plethora of gold medals.

Climate and Style

A warm, cool and dry climate, Mudgee is predominately known for its reds with a wide selection of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. There are also many compelling Rieslings, Rosés, quality chardonnays, and a smattering of Italian varieties to choose from.

General Opening Hours

Most cellar doors are open between 10am and 4pm on weekdays, and for longer at weekends.

Lunch and Dinner at Cellar Doors

Some cellars door restaurants offer mouth-watering dégustation menus – here bookings are essential.  You can easily nibble your way through a wine tour, by ordering charcuterie boards which most cellar doors offer.
