Sydney Weekender visits Mudgee Region
Mudgee once again put it on for the cameras as TV personality favourite Mike Whitney visited the region to showcase the best in local wine and produce for Sydney Weekender.
Following Mudgee Region Tourism’s win at the NSW Tourism Awards for best in Destination Marketing, Mike and the Sydney Weekender team were compelled to visit a number of Mudgee gems including highlights from Mudgee Fine Food’s new Farm Gate Trail, a taste of the famous woodfired pizzas and wine tastings at Di Lusso Estate, a closer look at bee hives at Mudgee Honey and a walk through the flowering olive grove at Rylstone Olive Press.
In between filming, the Sydney Weekender cast and crew stayed at the sleek and contemporary five-star Horizon Mudgee and basked in 360-degree views of undulating hills surrounded by vineyards.
Cara, CEO Mudgee Region Tourism says it was exciting to see the Mudgee Region come alive and highlight the local delights produced in the heart of the Region, “It was a pleasure to have Mike Whitney and the Sydney Weekender crew visit Mudgee and local producers were thrilled to showcase award-winning food and wine coming out of the region.”
Sydney Weekender’s special NSW Tourism Award winner’s episode airs on the Seven Network, 5.30pm Sunday 19 February.
