Red Clay Estate -  Boutique Mudgee winery with premium red & white wines

Red Clay Estate is an intimate boutique vineyard nestled in the foothills of the Mudgee valley, an area renowned for growing premium quality grapes in pockets of rich red clay soil. The goal of Red Clay Estate is on crafting wines that capture the essence of the earth on which its vineyard grows. The result? Intense and distinctive reds and whites, expressive of the Mudgee region.

Since the vineyard was first planted in 1988, all of Red Clay Estate's quality wines have been handcrafted from handpicked grapes and processed in a traditional basket press. For Mudgee's smallest winery, Red Clay Estate is fast making its mark, in particular with its premium reds.

When building the Winery and Cellar door in 1996, winemaker Ken Heslop had envisioned a winery that would be of the land, fitting comfortably with its surroundings. The result is a delightfully rustic construction from handmade Adobe bricks, using the same rich soil in which the vineyard was planted. Chosen for its thermal qualities, it provides constant cool temperatures, ideal for storing bottled wine.

A visit to Red Clay Estate is how all wineries should be: welcoming, jovial, and memorable. You'll soon discover that Ken's skill and talent extends beyond his winemaking; spinning yarns and telling jokes that will make your memories of Mudgee indelible!

"Honourable mentions: Red Clay Estate Winery – the whole place. The wine was great for the price and the service was delightful and jocular. If you want to know the fun side to being a winemaker in Mudgee, go here."

We'd love to welcome you to Red Clay Estate — Mudgee's best kept little secret....
