Seven years of Mudgee Food, Wine, and Art at the Pyrmont Festival

May saw the Pyrmont Festival return for its seventh year with a two-week program to showcase the best of the Mudgee Region and Pyrmont Dining Precinct in the form of wine, food and art.

The highlight of the festival was the annual headliner weekend, which was designed for the whole family. With live music, Mudgee artists showcasing their works of art, rides, children’s entertainment and approximately 100 stalls where guests were able to meet wine-makers, participate in tastings and sample a broad range of fine regional produce.

Since the Mudgee Region is the third largest grape-growing region in NSW and one of the oldest wine regions in the state, Sydney-siders proved once again that their love for farm to table produce is at an all-time high.
