Winburndale Vineyard and Winery - afternoon Wine Tasting Experience
- Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Glanmire, NSW
- Product code: PEJM7Q
We think you'll love this relaxing wine tasting afternoon we've created. It is a relaxing winery visit, close to Bathurst and in a beautiful Cellar Door.
Admire the scenery and enjoy fine wine. Since the first vintage in 2002, Winburndale have won 18 trophies and over 100 medals with the pinnacle being a Gold Medal at the Sydney Royal. Stunning achievements in a very competitive industry.
Their success is no accident of good fortune. Careful land management, strategic grape planting and an experienced eye watching over the wine making process helps ensure the wine you drink today is simply superb.
You will learn how the owners look after their beautiful vineyard with hand pruning and minimal use of chemicals and fertilisers. Their grapes are lovingly grown and hand picked at the critical ripening stage to make their award winning wines.
But it wasn't always a winery....
Long ago, lets say thousands of years ago, the land that today produces award winning wine was an ancient Aboriginal area. Home to the Wiradyuri people of the Eastern plains. The whole area was significant to the Wiradyuri and remains so today.
Fast forward to as recently as 160 years ago and it wasn't wine that made this area special, it was the discovery of gold.
And it was Carlo Giuseppe Fontana, who in 1864, discovered the area had rich gold deposits. He immediately took out a lease over the whole area and did pretty well too.
In his first year, he built a thriving mining community and extracted around $1M worth of gold (in today's money) before selling out and moving on. The community he started thrived for many years and with hard work, this now quiet corner of the world was at the time, home to thousands of people. Pubs, churches, schools and shops all thrived with everyone seeking their fortune in the gold fields that is now home to Winbundale wines.
If you book overnight (onsite) accommodation, you can learn more about the rich history of this area with a visit to the underground mines up on Mount Fontana.
Today though, you will enjoy a quiet award winning wine tasting experience with Bathurst Tours at Winburndale Vineyard and Winery. We think you'll love it.
