Well, where do I start? Richard and I moved here to the ever beautiful Mudgee in 2007, bringing my 2 children with us too. Sydney was just getting too crazy, and we wanted a better life for us all. We had visited many times and fell in love with the Mudgee Region and all it had to offer us. Rick got a job straight away as a TAFE teacher in the Building department (he has been a builder his whole life)
All I wanted to do when we moved here was to work in the wine industry. I have always been a lover of fine wine and all that goes with it. As a Horticulturist, I understand and connect with the process in getting to the end product.
I was persistent with my job hunting, regularly visiting my favourite cellar doors, until I think they got sick of me and gave me a job..... and as they say.... the rest is history, well not really, but that was the beginning of where we are now.
I have worked for 2 well known cellar doors in the region over the years, with a stint at the Mudgee Region Tourism, and currently, I get called upon from many other cellar doors to help out when needed.
Over the years I have found a change in peoples spending habits - people just don't buy straight cases anymore. When they visit the Mudgee Region most people get a mix from all the cellar doors they visit. It's all about sharing the love. It's not just the wineries that visitors have on their list, they also have the Mudgee Brewing Co and Baker Williams Distillery on their radar. When visitors go home and drink/share all this loveliness that they have collected, they can't just turn around and top up what they bought, so, I saw a need for an online, Exclusively MUDGEE, one stop shop for all Mudgee booze.
And here we are, I have such a passion for everything about our Mudgee Region, and I love to share. So, this is where we begin and will continue to grow. I hope you have a great experience on my website, and share with your friends.
It is about sharing the love and all that we have to offer.
Your sister in wine
IT'S A PASSION
PS: We got married in the middle of that as well xx
