What do you love about this re­gion? Mudgee has an ideal cli­mate and soil pro­file that is well suited to growing many dif­fer­ent grape va­ri­eties. These con­di­tions, com­bined with the en­ergy, drive and com­radery of our young band of wine­mak­ers, al­lows the re­gion to pro­duce small batches of high-qual­ity wine. We love our ‘fly­ing un­der the radar’ status, but word has spread and tourism’s boom­ing with venues such as Pipeclay Pumphouse and Zin House lead­ing the food scene be­ing well sup­ported by our lo­cal wine pro­duc­ers.

What sets your win­ery apart? Robert Stein Win­ery is known for pro­duc­ing some of NSW’s best ries­ling ex­am­ples, along with a wide range of award-win­ning wines that rep­re­sent the di­ver­sity of the Mudgee re­gion. One of Mudgee’s older winer­ies with a wine­mak­ing his­tory dat­ing back to the 1830s, it is still fam­ily owned and op­er­ated by third-gen­er­a­tion Ja­cob Stein. Our vine­yard is en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able, with a south­west­fac­ing as­pect, and a per­fect mix of shale quartz and red iron­stone soils pro­duc­ing ex­cep­tional qual­ity fruit. The on­site farm, veg­gie gar­dens, restau­rant and mo­tor­cy­cle mu­seum of­fer our vis­i­tors much more than just a cel­lar door visit.
