Kicked the day off with Michelle & Wayne as we dropped by a few cellar doors in search of standout Cab Sav’s. Local wildlife greeted us at our first stop, and the day just got better from there. After enjoying a relaxed lunch we grew our little party group to fill the bus, and it was time to crank up the music. After many laughs, tastings and sing-alongs it was time to head for home. As so often happens, new friends put plans in place to continue enjoying the best of Mudgee into the evening. It was a great day with great people, which makes my job so enjoyable. Cheers Peter ...

What a great way to spice up a birthday weekend. Eight friends spent the morning checking out the range of diverse wine styles on offer. After many laughs, plenty of rocking music, a few photos, and a host of wine it was time to bid them farewell. The afternoon continued the theme with eight new guests that quickly found common ground for enjoying some unique wines. Some great wines were purchased for reliving the visit once home. After dropping off all the wine, the last stop was the Flavours of Mudgee street fest, were everyone disappeared into the huge crowd. Thanks everyone for another great day in the magic bus.
Cheers Peter

Jana and Ian came back for a second day today, for something a little different.
After joining me on a wine tour yesterday, they hit the Flavours of Mudgee street festival, followed by a degustation dinner at Blue Wren Winery, then hit the Mudgee nightlife at Kelly's Irish pub.
How do you top a day like that? By going bush for some sweet serenity.
We also ran into my friend Hans, who was out photographing the rock orchids at Ferntree Gully today. It was great to hear him talk about the flora in the Gully.
Thanks for joining me again, friends.

10 friends from Dubbo bit the bullet and decided to come on a Mudgee wine tour. Oh and to practice their golf swings, singing and photo posing. Saturday Tours are always awesome and these guys didn't let me down!
First stop Thistle Hill with Anthony for a n alfresco tasting and then on to see Bernard at Blacklea. Karen even got Bernard to crack I smile!!! Burnbrae was next on the agenda and then off into town to collect festival glasses and tickets to avoid having to rush, wine tours should never feel rushed!
Off to lunch at Lowe wines where they saw Shane who remembered them from last year!!!! Second last stop was at Vinifera and Baker Williams distillery, butterscotch snaps all round. Last stop was at Gilbert's for a tasty tasting session accompanied by cheese and chilling in the sun.
Cheers to an amazing group of friends 🍷

Kindred spirits came together today to bond over a little wine, and jiggle around the countryside in a little yellow bus with me. I love putting around in my little bus, and all the better if a bunch of new friends join me!
Pretty sure they'll all be running into each other tonight at the local street festival, "flavours of Mudgee".
Thanks guys, it was a pleasure meeting you all.

Wow!!! What a day!!! Awesome weather with a crowd to match. It never ceases too amaze me how quickly people start to get along and then become ratbags! First stop, Robert Stein with the beautiful Judy then onto ShortSheep with Tony looking after us. I then dropped my full day people at Lowe for lunch and popped into town to collect the rest of my crew. What a classic bunch of people! After Lowe we popped in to Pieter van Gents for ports and then off to Huntington for reds. I love chatting away while everyone's chatting and getting to know some amazing people and hear their stories. My face is hurting from laughing too much. Last stop was at Baker Williams for some snaps! Thank you to all my tour buddies today xxx big hugs! ...

Peter and Robyn from the Hunter, are used to living in wine country.
But they decided they'd better check out Mudgee to see what all the fuss is about.
We were joined by Michelle from Mudgee, and four made a nice little party!
The ducks at Blue Wren are enjoying their new pond next to the vines.
Michelle discovered a taste for dessert wines, and Robyn and Peter took home about half the wine stocks from Mudgee!
Thanks, friends. It was a pleasure spending the day with you.

Wednesday wine tours are for best friends and wine. I picked up Jacqui and Carolyn and headed out to The Small Wine Makers to see Jonny, they loved the sparking! Next stop at Short Sheep to see some beautiful babies, Carolyn was smitten at first sight. On to Di Lusso for some Italian variety with Shaun. Carolyn spotted Peterson's on the way so that was our next port of call. Veronica made the tasting a lovely experience and the ladies fell in love with the views and feel of the property.
As Carolyn is an animal lover I had to take her to see Tommy at Pieter van Gents, they decided the Verdelho was going to be best with dinner tonight as it goes best with salmon, I'm very jealous! Last stop at Gilbert's Cellar door for wine and cheese. Thank you to my lovely ladies for a beautiful afternoon.

Deb found herself with a spare day to spend in Mudgee after catching up with some friends.
So a little tastebud tantalisation was in order! Thought I would treat her to a little tour visiting my two-legged and four-legged winery mates.
The multitude of lambs at Short Sheep were a treat!
Two other guests joined us for the afternoon but preferred to create memories in their minds, rather than on camera.
Thanks Deb, hope you can come again sometime 😊

Sunday turned on the most glorious weather you could hope for. Warm & sunny, with a light breeze were all the ingredients needed to set the scene for an awesome day. From the stunning views across the Cudgegong Valley at First Ridge & Moothi estate, to the relaxing sculpture gardens of Rosby. This trip ticked all the boxes. Thanks guys for making it such a pleasant day to share with you. Cheers Peter ...

Cooler temperatures and a howling wind didn't deter these six Dads from cruising around some of their favourite wineries to sample, and take home, a diverse range of flavours. Between the various tastings there was even time for a friendly match of boules and a wind challenged 'mis-match' of badminton, (service into the wind resulted in the shuttlecock returning to its start point) much to the amusement of onlookers. A nice cleansing ale at the end of the wineries rounded out a very enjoyable day. See you back next time for a few new flavours of Mudgee. ...

A great group of folks graced me with their presence today as we cruised around some of the finest wineries in the country. Maybe I'm biased, I dunno!
My morning crew commented on how serene Mudgee is.
I spotted a helicopter taking off from Burnbrae Wines, something we see from time to time around here.
A couple of awards went out this afternoon at Small Winemakers, Sarah won the award for most beautiful hands πŸ˜‰ (Johnny is a charmer), and the lucky door prize of a bottle of bubbly, was picked up by AndrΓ©.
