Established in 1998, De Beaurepaire Wines is a multi-award winning, family owned and run producer of French-style wines located just outside the beautiful & historic town of Rylstone.
Producing wines like the French is all about the ‘terroir’, and due to a very cool inland climate and sandy-loam on limestone soils, the ‘terroir’ at Rylstone is the closest approximation to Burgundy and its neighbour Champagne, in Australia.
Although their cellar door is a little off the more well-trodden wine trail of nearby Mudgee, the wines produced are generating a strong following at many of Australia’s best restaurants, bars and hotels.
And what a treat you’re in for as you drive through their hidden valley in the hills on your way through the 53ha of vines to their cellar door – it makes you feel like you’ve uncovered a beautiful hideaway (the actual translation of the family’s surname)!
Their cellar door is located in an 1850s-built stable. Surrounded by hand-chiseled sandstone blocks, with sweeping views across a sea of vines, one of the family members will provide you with a relaxed and informative tasting.
They offer an extensive range of award winning cool climate French style wines. So, wherever your interests lie, with Sparkling, White, Rosé, Red & Dessert Wines on offer, you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy.
Tempted to sit back, enjoy the wine and soak up vineyard life with a share platter or two? They’ve got you covered! With several seating areas on the lawns surrounding the cellar door, you can pick your favourite spot, order a platter and then feast your eyes on the vines and surrounding countryside.
If you’re planning to visit as a group, please do call or email beforehand so they can arrange your tasting and share platters in the best way for you to make the most of the experience.
They are open Thursday to Monday 11am-4pm, or by appointment at other times.
