Well it’s been a bit of a while since a video post, sorry about that, but here is the latest…..
We have spent quite a lot of time in the Mudgee region and there is one reason why – it’s fantastic! The wines here are varied and unique. Ranging from sweet perfumed whites right up to the face eating, mouth punching Durif and everything in between. Tasting heaven.
Mudgee is 3 1/2 hours drive from Sydney over the Blue Moutains, and then take a right…

Red Clay Estate Winery – the whole place. The wine was great for the price and the service was delightful and jocular. If you want to know the fun side to being a winemaker in Mudgee, go here.
Uninspiring: 1838 wines. Got a few medals, not sure why, then jacked the price up. Or maybe it happened it reverse. Anyway, sits in this category with us - I love that wine can be so subjective and the net for letting me tell everyone. hu-ha!
