Gilbert Family Wines

Gilbert Family Wines began its journey in 2004 by fifth generation winemaker Simon Gilbert. Simon has always had a strong desire to do things his own way and create a label true to himself, at the same time paying tribute to his heritage.
Our vineyard is located 15 minutes outside the town centre of Mudgee, in Apple Tree Flat. At an elevation of 520 metres above sea level, this beautiful landscape has rich clay loam soil, which is deep and well drained, with underlying shattered rock and quartz. These well-drained soils are highly suited to viticulture and produce wines of great character and depth.
Mudgee has a mild climate with cool summer nights which favourably extend the grape ripening period. The summer and autumn days are warmer than Orange due to the lower altitude, with the mean January temperature being 26.7°C and the average rainfall is 600mm per annum. The Mudgee sunshine results in incredible colour and powerful fruit flavour, while cooler nights create complexity and savoury characters.
Mudgee is home to our tasting room ‘The Cellar by Gilbert’, here we offer both current and museum releases.
