De Beaurepaire Wines
Domaine de Beaurepaire is located just outside the historic township of Rylstone, about 50 km southeast of the equally historical town of Mudgee. Rylstone is part of the Mudgee "G.I.C" (or appellation area), although it is 200m higher in elevation than Mudgee and with a significantly cooler climatic profile. The longer ripening periods, sandy-loam soils on limestone and later harvesting of grapes produce classic cool-climate, French-style characteristics that are found in De Beaurepaire wines and are similar to wines from Burgundy, Rhone Valley and Champagne districts of France.
The name de Beaurepaire, besides being the surname of the vignerons also translates from old French as "from a beautiful hideaway" . Domaine de Beaurepaire is certainly a beautiful hideaway, nestled in the hills upstream from Mudgee.
The vineyard consists of 53 hectares of vines and was established in 1998. It is located on "Woodlawn" Read more »
