Why Is Burnbrae Wines Considered a Mudgee Icon?
1. Handcrafted wines
Burnbrae’s handcrafted wines are simply exceptional. They are well made, have a real story behind them and they hold their own on any occasion, from everyday enjoyment to the wine-snobs dinner party!

“Burnbrae” is the Scottish term for “brook at the foot of the hills.” The winery boasts an awesome view of the ranges and Erudgere Valley, as well as fabulous gardens and grounds. It truly is a picturesque vineyard but if you want to take your sightseeing a notch higher, you can take a helicopter tour!
3. Rustic Cellar door
Rows of vines lend a refreshing sight as you approach its famous and rustic cellar door. And here’s a trivia – that famous cellar door was actually a huge dance hall a long time ago. Imagine the scent of old wood mixed with the unmistakable aroma of grape juice?
4. Vibrant friendly staff
Get ready for a warm and friendly welcome from the Burnbrae winemakers, the staff, and Bonnie, the resident celebrity canine. Your tasting alone would be a memorable experience, and it is topped off with great stories about their award-winning wines.
5. Delicious Food
Served daily from 10am -3pm are tasty anti-pasto platters made with locally sourced (where possible) seasonal produce. Also, do yourself a massive favour and enjoy their lazy Sunday woodfired pizzas overlooking the picturesque vineyard. The 3rd Sunday of each month, you can also top that off with some live acoustic tunes.
6. A great place to party
Thinking of having a unique celebration for your wedding, reunion or birthday? Burnbrae has an event venue that can be tweaked according to your preferences and can sit over a hundred people. Just contact them, and tell them the theme of your event. They can help you create a party you and your guests will remember for years to come.
