Wine Basics By Region - Mudgee Print

Overview

Nestled deep in the western slopes of New South Wales’ Blue Mountains, Mudgee is another historical player in Australia’s wine industry. Commercial planting occurred in the 1860s led by German immigrants, but the modern era of grape production really began in the 1970s. A number of large national wine companies have set up shop in the region, complimenting the array of boutique wineries that offer a diverse range of wine styles.
