Craigmoor Wines- Mudgee’s Oldest Winery
Craigmoor Wines is Mudgee’s oldest winery and was established in 1858. It is surrounded by gum trees and beautiful vines on the Eurunderee Creek’s banks. It is around 5 minutes away from the city center and has multiple picnic spots around the Craigmoor winery and the Craigmoor cricket Oval. The wine museum, cellar door, and art gallery feature the artworks of Georgia Mansur, a very talented artist. Visit the cellar door to taste and buy Craigmoor and Montrose wines.
Vineyards and Their Terroirs
The founder of the winery was Bob Oatley, and the Robert Oatley Vineyards is the family’s winemaking reincarnation. The vineyards are in Pemberton, Margaret Valley, Barossa, McLaren Vale, etc. These areas have diverse terroirs and climatic conditions that allow them to get the best grapes for their wines. Their outstanding team uses the best equipment and techniques both in the cellar and the vineyards. Sustainable methods are used, and minimal intervention takes place in the vineyards.
Shiraz, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon are some of the grapes they use to make their outstanding red, white, rose, sparkling, and dessert wines. The wines show the quality of the grapes and reflect the character and quality of their rich terroir. Some of their wine labels include Wild Oats, Robert Oatley, Montrose, Four in Hand, and Craigmoor. There are various nice accommodations available around the winery for guests.
It is a great place to relax in the lap of nature and taste some of Australia’s best wines.
