Bachie love­birds Sam Wood and Snezana Markoski shared their first kiss in the Hunter Val­ley, but Mudgee would’ve made for just as mag­i­cal a set­ting! The rus­tic, ro­man­tic wine­grow­ing re­gion is a four-hour drive from Sydney – or just 50 min­utes with Flypel­i­can (flypel­i­can.com.au), who op­er­ate twice-daily flights on a Jet­stream 32 air­craft that will make you feel like a Kar­dashian, mi­nus the price tag. Fares start at $99 one way. Stay at the Mudgee Homestead Guest­house (mudgee­home­stead.com.au) – the wrap-around ve­randa de­liv­ers views, while the chefs de­liver the goods with lo­cal pro­duce. Spend the day cheese-tasting at Moothi Es­tate (mooth­ies­tate.com.au) – the vine­yard also pro­duces an award-win­ning caber­net sauvi­gnon! – then stop by Pipe clay Pump­house (pipeclay­pump­house.com.au) or El­tons (el­tons.com.au) for canapes and cock­tails.

With more than 35 cel­lar doors to explore, Mudgee’s one grape es­cape! r e p o H r e b m A : o t h P
