This morning enjoy breakfast at your leisure/own expense before departing from Mudgee we enjoy the scenic drive to Rylstone and our destination De Beaurepaire Winery.  From the first vine planting in 1998, this family’s single estate vineyard has grown into a renowned multi-generational boutique producer of French-style wines.
