Mudgee’s best producers will be tabling up their finest offerings next weekend (March 17+ 18) for the annual Mudgee Region Food and Drink Trail.
The paddock to plate journey will allow foodies to discover some of the best food and drink produce that the Mudgee region has to offer.
This year there will be over 20 venues participating including cellar doors, cafes, a distillery and a brewery.
You could start your day with a ‘Double Caffeinator’ at Artisan on Lewis, then head out to Rosby Wines for a Vietnamese Poached Chicken Salad and glass of Riesling and finish the day at the Mudgee Brewery with a Caramelised onion and High Valley Feta Tartlet with Mudgee Brewing Pale Ale.
There will be plenty of places to choose from with trail-goers encouraged to plan their day ahead of time. Anticipate travelling to 4 to 5 venues over the course of 4 to 5 hours.
To take part, purchase a $40 Trail Pass containing 5 vouchers. Each voucher can be exchanged for one food and one beverage sample at participating venues on the weekend of 17 + 18 March only.
Trail passes are available from the Visitor Information Centre, 84 Market St Mudgee and online at www.visitmudgeeregion.com.au (please note a booking fee applies). You can also pick up a Trail Pass from participating venues.
How to get around?
You can self drive or jump on the hop on/off bus, which will travel to each venue via four separate bus routes, excluding Rylstone venues.
For the cost of $30 for a single day bus pass or $50 for the weekend it will provide a hassle free way to get around for the weekend.
