What do you know about Mudgee wine?

Can you tell the difference between wines produced in Mudgee and ones that come from other parts of the world? Would you like to find out what makes Mudgee wines so special and unique?

On Wednesday 14th of September, Roth’s Wine Bar will be hosting a fun and casual evening where visitors will get to compare some of Mudgee’s finest wines with those considered the ‘flagships’ from other regions in Australia.

The event will help guests learn the subtleties and the nuances of a Mudgee drop from some of our region’s well-loved winemakers and see how they differ from the rest of the country.

Mudgee is the third largest grape-producing region in NSW and our wonderful wine producers are one of the unique characteristics and drawcards of our region.

Whether you live in Mudgee or anyone where else in Australia, our local wine is worth knowing about and recognising its unique flavours is sure to make you popular at your next dinner party.

Bookings are essential. Tickets cost $55 + $3 booking fee per person and are available from the Mudgee Visitors Information Centre at 84 Market Street.

It’s Gotta Be Mudgee!

We know how awesome Mudgee is, and food and wine lovers of Sydney will this week be privy to just how great our region is when the Mudgee region is put on show at the Pyrmont Festival of Wine, Food and Art between today and the 27th of May 2012.

This Sunday’s free outdoor Wine and Food fair is set to be a hit with locals, being held at Pirrama Park, with wine tasting, fine food and produce stands and plenty to tantalise just about any palette, and of course Mudgee will be at the centre of it all!

Other events taking place as part of the festival include dinners, cheese master classes, long lunches, tours and art exhibitions, all revolving around the great products that come out of our very own country town. If you know of people in Sydney that are keen wine connoisseurs, love great food, or who appreciate art, then please share this post with them.

Hats off to the Mudgee Wine Region industry for collaborating with the Pyrmont Ultimo Chamber of Commerce and the City of Sydney to put on the event, which is aimed at introducing a little bit of country and showcase the origins of great food, wine and art to city folk and hopefully boosting tourism in the Mudgee region.

Tickets Still Available for this Weekend!

If you haven’t already got your tickets to one of Mudgee’s major annual events – Go Grazing – then you’re in luck because you can still get tickets, even though the event is on this Saturday!

If you’re a bit of a wine connoisseur or fancy a nibble on great foods made from locally produced goods, then Mudgee’s Go Grazing event should definitely be on your calendar! Not only will you find Mudgee’s regional wines from leading winemakers, you’ll also find some of the best matching foods to go with quality selections of red and white wines, not to mention the glass of bubbles you receive on arrival to the event.

Held this Saturday, 21st of April 2012 at the Mudgee Showgrounds, and at a very reasonable ticket price of $70 per person (plus $2 booking fee for online purchases), Go Grazing is one of Mudgee’s best food and wine events – we’ve always had fun when we’ve been there!

You can purchase tickets from the Mudgee Visitor Information Centre online or call 6372 1020. Click on the image below to visit the Mudgee Wine website for all of the information!

**Please note that there is an error on the banner above, the venue is actually the Mudgee Showground**

Other events in Mudgee this weekend:

Tickets are still available for Sunday’s Country vs City Origin match at Glen Willow Sporting Complex that we wrote about a couple of weeks ago – get your tickets here!

Plus there’s also the Mudgee Races on this Saturday as well – and we know very well that the Mudgee races are very popular, and a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon with friends.

What an action packed weekend we have here in Mudgee this weekend… never a dull moment!

100 Mile Picnic is On Tomorrow

Head to the banks of the Cudgegong River at Lawson Park off Short Street tomorrow between 11am and 4pm for the second annual 100 Mile Picnic!

Bring your picnic rug, some chairs and of course your family and friends, and enjoy the food and wine on offer from around the local Mudgee region. The 100 Mile Picnic is about getting all of the region’s local producers, wineries and chefs from within 100 miles (or 160 kilometers) of Mudgee together for a great event that’s sure not to disappoint.

Not only does the day consist of picnic treats, there’ll also be entertainment including yabbie races, cooking demonstrations and entertainment for the younger ones. One of the important messages of the event is to promote sustainable living, which includes knowing how far your food and goods have to travel to get to your home, because the greater the distance our food travels, the greater the greenhouse gas emissions that are produced.

Last year’s inaugural event saw thousands of people from around Mudgee, Sydney and Central regions in attendance, raising money for non-profit community facilities such as Pioneer House and Kanandah, to assist in the provision of the highest level of care to our aged community.

If you don’t have plans tomorrow, make sure you pull up a picnic rug at Mudgee’s 100 Mile Picnic!

Mark Go Grazing on your calendar for Saturday April 21st 2012, then jump onto the Mudgee Wine website to purchase your tickets and read more about the event.

A Day On The Green Post Event Wrap Up!

Mudgee couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better line up of performers for this year’s Day On The Green, which took place this weekend at the Robert Oatley Vineyard.

Those who were lucky enough to get a ticket (which sold out insanely quickly) lapped up the atmosphere and the incredible performances from entertainers Kasey Chambers an Cold Chisel to name just a couple.

If you weren’t there, then you’d better make sure you keep an eye on our blog for information about the next one, because if it’s anything like this year, it’ll be sold out again once tickets go on sale.

It’s one of Mudgee’s most popular events, and one that you’ll want to go back to year after year.

Check out some of the photos on the Mudgee Guardian’s photo gallery.

Stay tuned for more photos coming soon!!
