Book With Confidence*

Australia produces some truly sensational wines, from bold and spicy Shiraz in the Hunter Valley to exquisite Chenin Blanc over in the Swan. But, if you want to try something truly special, then the cool-climate wines of Orange and Mudgee need to be on your radar. Warm days and cool nights prolong the ripening periods, leading to more elegant, refined flavours that dance on your palate - and we can’t get enough. This four day foodie tour ex Sydney will showcase the best of both regions.

Be sure to pack your appetite, because this is a food and wine tour worth savouring every single moment of! Visit five-star Halliday-rated Printhie Estate Winery, sampling award winning premium wines such as Pinot Noir, Merlot, Shiraz and Pinot Gris; raise a glass (or two) to the small-batch boutique wines of Rowlee Winery; treat your tastebuds at one of the district’s oldest wineries, Angullong Winery; and stop by Colmar Estate to sample the pick of the vintage. Along the way, relax in sophisticated 4-star accommodation in Mudgee and Orange, indulge with a delicious paddock-to-plate dinner at Pipeclay Pumphouse, stop for a gourmet lunch at Racine Bakery - and more!
