Mudgee Explorer Tours

A day with the honeymooners and an afternoon tour with Denise and Mark. What a perfect day! All of them are first time winery explorers in Mudgee and they loved all of them. First stop at Pieter van Gents for ports (and to love Tommy the cat) then off to Farmers Daughter and Petersons. I dropped the love birds at Lowe for lunch and went to get Denise and Mark who are enjoying a month long stay in Mudgee. Back to Lowe for a cheeky tasting and then off to Bunnamagoo and finally Moothi Estate.
It doesn't get much better than this!

Mudgee Explorer Tours

Jeff and Liz came Mudgee wine exploring for their first time today, Jeff had been to Mudgee with his job before but had always said to Liz he wanted to bring her here to try some Mudgee wines. So finally here in Mudgee they jumped on board the bus and off we went for the day, "Honey Haven","Burnbrae","Thistle Hill","Burundulla" a busy morning, so we stopped at "Lowes" for lovely and well earned platter and of corse some more wine. After a lovely leisurely lunch out in the beautiful sunny winter weather we had today we headed over to "Moothi Estate" with yet more stunning scenery and a lovely wine tasting with Jess. Then these guys where troopers and pushed on because they didn't want to miss out on "Peter Van Gents". Then to finish off the tour we ended in town at "Dads Deli" where Jeff and Liz were able to buy alot of the locally sourced produce that was on their beautiful "Lowes" lunch platter. Thankyou new friends for a fabulous tour, I know we will see you again soon and I can't wait. Freya Olsson ...

Mudgee Explorer Tours

Marvelous Monday wine exploring on the Magic Mudgee Explorer Tours bus with this great couple from Sydney. So the treat of a few days in Mudgee is extending birthday celebrations for Laura and she is getting every spoilt during their stay with lunch yesterday at the "Pipeclay Pumphouse" and dinner, drinks and live music at the "Mudgee Brewery". But the real treat for their Mudgee stay was of corse todays full day wine to with us lol. We started today with another birthday person as it was Tim White's birthday (winemaker at "Thistle Hill"). We then headed over to "Vinifera", "Lowes" and then it was across to See Jai and Jes at the stunning "Moothi Estate" for one of their delicious plaiters for lunch and of corse they also did a wine tasting while we where there. Then after lunch we went and saw gorgeous Lance at "The Farmers Daughter Cellardoor", followed by "Peter Van Gents" and we finished our busy day with one of my favorites Reneè at "Short Sheep". Thankyou guys for your great company today, Freya Olsson oxox ...

Mudgee Explorer Tours

What a fabulous day, with a morning tour and an afternoon tour, all of these wine explorers where such fun and we all had a day to remember. We started the day with 10 and headed of to "Thistle Hill"with a lovely wine tasting on the deck in the sun. Then we headed over to "Blacklea" to see Bernard and to try the fabulous olive oils and sauces that he and his amazing wife make (no one leaves there without one of their sensational products). Last stop before lunch was at "Burnbrae" another great stop. Lunch was split between "Lowes" and the "Zin House" where 8 of our group finished their tour. I then added 7 new wine explorers to my 2 remaining guests and they all tasted "Lowes" fabulous wines before we headed off for the afternoon tour, stopping at "Farmers Daughter", "Short Sheep" and a final stop at "Peter Van Gents". Thankyou to the 17 fabulous people that shared a great Saturday with me. Freya Olsson ...

Birthday Friday for Katherine so I started off her wine tour with a surprise birthday cupcake (thanks to Reneè from Short Sheep for the inside info about her birthday). Then I took the birthday girl and her lovely partner for a great day of wine touring starting at "Burnbrae" then off to "Thistle Hill" which was the favorite of the day with a lovely wine tasting in the sun with Tim White the winemaker and then as Tim had to bottle some Muscat for them (as he had run out) he took us over to the winery where these guys where lucky enough to tasting 3 different Muscats and blended them to make their own special bottle that they then bottled them selves. What an unexpected treat this was, and made a special day even more so. After "Thistle Hill" we went over to "Blacklea" for some amazing Olive Oils and Sauces and a Muscatel. Then it was time for a beautiful platter with a wine tasting for lunch at "Lowes". Then in the afternoon we went to "Moothi Estate", "First Ridge","Baker Williams Distillery" and ended back at "Short Sheep" for a wine tasting and also accommodation for this lovely couple. Thankyou guys for a great day and I hope you had an awesome birthday Katherine. Freya Olsson ...

Terrific Tuesday Tour, I had three gorgeous couples that soon became friends through their love of wine. After all three couples where picked up this afternoon we headed straight to "Steins" where we started our wine exploring for the day, and they picked up some great knowledge from Karen who took them for their wine tasting. Then we hopped over to "Short Sheep" with my friend Renee warm and welcoming as always. And last but not least for the afternoon the always popular cellardoor/Winery of "Peter Van Gent" where with the atmosphere and Melinda serving this group they fell in love. Thankyou Tuesday's Tour for a great afternoon. Freya Olsson ...

What a gorgeous threesome I had come wine exploring with me this afternoon. This group of friends from the New South Wales, Central Coast came to Mudgee for a few days to share their joint love for good wines, and what better place to do this than Mudgee. We started the afternoon at "Vinifera Cellar Door" with the owner Dr Tony Mackendry a very knowledgeable, local character. Then we headed to "Steins" where they tasted, learnt and purchased with lovely Karen. Then "Peter Van Gents" famous for their ports didn't disappoint and we finished the afternoon with lovely Bernard from "Blacklea" with his amazing olive oils and sauces that where a requested stop for todays tour. Thankyou ladies for a great afternoon and enjoy your steaks tonight at the "Lawson Park Hotel". Freya Olsson ...

Saturday afternoon tour with this gorgeous bunch of 11 was an absolute pleasure. As I picked up three different groups that by the end of the afternoon you would have thought they had known each other all their lives. We headed to "Peter Van Gents" first up, then we popped next door to "Petersons", then always popular "Steins" where not only the wines were winners but also the fantastic antique motorbike museum with free entry. Then we ended the day with "High Valley Cheese" and "Gilberts Cellar Door" where todays tour were thoroughly happy to end their tour with wine, cheese, beer and a couple of platters. Thankyou to todays explorers for a great afternoon, can't wait to see you all again. Freya Olsson ...

The fab five was the name I gave to todays tour as they were 5 fab couples. These couples started off as strangers and but soon became great friends, in fact two of the couples booked for just the morning tour but ending up staying for the whole day. We started at"Bunamagoo" then it was off to "First Ridge" then "Moothi Estate". By this time my crew where ready for some lunch at "Lowes", but before lunch we had an awesome tasting with gorgeous Shane, and as always he spoilt these guys, they had their wine tasting out in the sun and they where also treated to an early taste of "Lowes" new Rose, and Caitlin got down to "Louee's" level to spoil him (well he is a pretty gorgeous dog) After great food and wine at "Lowes" it was time to move on to "Vinifera" then "Baker Williams Distillery", "Peter Van Gents" where some of the locals hangout, yes Carlie I mean you lol. Then more wine and some awesome cheeses at Gilberts/ High Valley Cheeses to finish the day, thanks Fab Five, I loved having your company today. Freya Olsson ...

I took a lovely family of 4 out to Ferntree Gully today, we were the only ones there and it was nice to soak up the serenity.
The birds were singing and the sunshine was streaming through the ferns.
Yum cha for lunch was a hit as always, followed by a walk on windamere dam and a visit to Logan Wine.
We spotted a group of wild goats at the dam, and watched a plane practising some tricky manoeuvres.
