What a fun group 🍷🍷🍷
This father & son trio, travelled from Sydney and Wollongong to watch the dragons play on Sunday. Although, the outcome wasn’t a win for the dragons, it did not stop this lot from having a good morning of wine tasting, and leaving Mudgee on a positive.
These guys, dived in and attempted all of the tasting lists. But enjoyed the Cabernet Sauvignon all 3 destinations today. Thanks for touring with me Terry, Scott & Ryan.

3 groups on the bus Saturday and they began with one thing in common - Dragons fans! We headed to our first stop where new friendships began over some super quaffable wines.
Our guests commented on the amazing and friendly service from the cellar door personnel, and they continued to be impressed all throughout the day as each winery stood out in its own way.
Kelly and her team at Mudgee Wines went above and beyond to make sure everyone's tastes were catered for at lunch, and Tracey's careful planning with Kelly ensured that Kylie's birthday a memorable one with old and new found friends - oh and the suprise cake was amazing!
Yet again I feel so lucky to host such beautiful people, and to be an ambassador for our region.
Thank you for exploring with us Jess & Paul, Sarah, Emily & Siovaun, Tracey, Joe, Kylie, Kev, Shai and Steve. What a top day!
And thank you to our Cellar Door partners -

30th birthday surprise 🎂
🎈This morning, a group of friends gathered from Sydney to give Sam a great surprise for his 30th birthday. Renee his partner kept an amazing secret, that all of his closet friends travel to mudgee and meet them for a day of fun. What an amazing morning, tasting some fine wine & relaxing at Vinifera/Baker Williams distillery playing Jenga & badminton. Happy 30th birthday Sam! 🎈
“Wine was the occasion”🍷🥂
This afternoon I was joined by two different groups, who soon became well acquainted by the first drink. They had a few things in common, that they were supporting the dragons and their love of wine! George, being the only male on tour this afternoon, also let out some good dad jokes which added to the laughter of today. What a great afternoon spent sipping 🍷
Cheers 🥂 Peterson’s, The Small Winemakers, Baker Williams distillery, Vinifera, Heslop, Mansfield & Walter wines for your excellent service today 🍷 ... See MoreSee Less

Diablo seated two different groups today:
Both groups travelling to Mudgee to attend the races Saturday & the footy Sunday. Although there was friendly rivalry amongst with St George supporters & Knights Supporters, that was put aside to have a great wine tour!
🌅 morning tourers: Carol & 7 friends who travelled from Newcastle suburbs & Wollongong.
The group knew exactly what enticed their palates, so were straight into the goods when tasting. A stop was even made to restock everyone’s port collections at Peter van gent.
🌄afternoon tourers: Sabina & 7 friends who travelled from different suburbs of Sydney. The group enjoyed all of the lists at the destinations we visited, there was plenty of selections for tasting. In between stops we cranked “pony” & “horses” and had a fabulous karaoke session.
Thankyou to the cellar door staff for having us &
Thankyou to both groups for supporting Mudgee region!

Let’s swirl our glasses, smell & taste some reds & whites, this group had no preference for thirst.
Wendy & Peter, from Noosa and David & Tegan from Newcastle visited us for a full day tour today. Today’s mission; broaden our horizons & taste some of the different varieties of wines Mudgee has to offer, they had no preference on wineries, they let Emily have free reign on destinations. In return, a showcase of divergent wineries. Added bonuses for today, the honey haven & high valley cheese to taste some local produce. Thankyou, Robert Stein, Peterson’s, Baker Williams distillery, Vinifera, Walter wines & Burnbrae.

🎈Happy 30th birthday Minh! 🎈
What a fabulous afternoon, that was planned by Minh’s partner Hui. Minh’s first wine tour, and first time to mudgee. What a tremendous place to start, mudgee. Starting off at Peterson’s where the Verdelho was the favourite, then onto Huntington & bunnamagoo where the reds hit the spot.
As an added extra, we ventured off to the honey haven to taste some delectables, and have Hui & Minh’s first taste of Mead.
Hope the rest of your birthday is enjoyed Minh, and your dinner tonight is absolutely delicious. Thankyou for touring with us

Split tour with these Saturday Sippers. I loved that Jacqui, who has never liked olives left 1838 Wines and Olives with a new perspective. Wayne (Uncs) identified as a beer man pre tasting, each cellar door stop changed his mind! Veteran wine tourer Elle and 3 friends celebrated a birthday in style! So many laughs thank you!
The afternoon high flyers were picked up from hangar house had some very interesting stories.

What a way to spend an afternoon, showing a wonderful group of visitors three of Mudgee’s finest wineries! Caitlin with five of her friends from Sydney and Canada, enjoyed the afternoon. Eloise and Cat joined the tour and made up a fun group, eager to learn the fine art of wine producing! Lots of questions asked and answers given from the knowledgeable and professional cellar door staff! Thank you for a lovely afternoon, lots of fun and laughter!

Two different groups of people united today to form a full day tour. Although we all started off as strangers, we ended as friends. One group, sending off a good friend as she is leaving back to England and the other, an early celebration for mother’s day. But both had an exceptional idea, that was to come to mudgee and check out the wines. So we explored a few fabulous wineries around the area, gooree cellar door, eloquesta, Peterson’s, mudgee wines(lunch was delicious), thistle hill & burnbrae.
