climate The Mudgee Wine Region in Southern New South Wales, with more than 40 boutique wineries, has a wine making history that stretches back to 1858. Situated in the Central West area on the hilly country to the west of the Great Dividing Range, Mudgee has a more varied climate than the Hunter Region, on the coast. Spring frosts and cold winter nights delay budburst; the rainfall and humidity are lower; there are more hours of sunshine; and irrigation provides a regular water supply for many vineyards. The autumn and summer days are warm but not too hot, and harvest occurs about four weeks later than the Hunter. Mudgee has an altitude of around 450 m providing mild-climate conditions, but not as cold as the New England Region. Its climate is generally similar to than of the Cowra Region and the Orange Region. The brown volcanic soils are generally well drained and slightly acidic and are mostly sandy loam over neutral clay subsoils. The Mudgee Region has a unique terroir based on its climate, soil, and unique talent of its wine makers who have developed their own regional approach and methods for producing outstanding wines. Manfield Wines and Di Lusso Estate have pioneered new Italian varieties. Vinifera Estate have developed the Spanish varieties of Graciano and Tempranillo. Mudgee white wines include Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, and for the red Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot noir and Shiraz wines are much admired. Italian varieties like Sangiovese and Barbera and Spanish varieties such as Tempranillo and Graciano are also producing outstanding wines.

The Mudgee Wine Region is home to seven districts: Mudgee ; Gulgong ; Rylstone ; North Mudgee ; Cooyal ; Appletree Flat ; West Mudgee.
