Mudgee Region winery Bunnamagoo Estate Wines is set to play host to the second inaugural Polo in the Paddock event on Saturday 21 February, 2015.
A picnic-style event for the whole family, Polo in the Paddock will bring together many of NSW’s top riders, as well as national and international riders, for a family-friendly day of tournaments, local produce, entertainment and Bunnamagoo Wine.
In addition to the on-field action, Polo in the Paddock also hosts ‘The Long Lunch’ – a grazing style feast in a private tent with perfect polo viewing.
Tickets are available online now, starting at $30 for general admission. Event manager Olivia Morgan anticipates a second sell-out event.
“The strong emphasis on food and wine will continue, as it underpins the success of the event. Guests can enjoy a family-friendly day as the perfect opportunity to celebrate any occasion; a birthday, reunion or just an excuse to have a fun day out.”
Gourmet hampers are also available to purchase for $100, private tents can be booked for groups of 12 or more and special packages are available with local accommodation at Mudgee’s Perry Street Hotel.
Bunnamagoo Estate wines will be flowing all day, with guests also being able to enjoy other Mudgee Region produce such as Milnes of Mudgee, High Valley Cheese, Rylstone Olive Press oils, The Goose Apple cider and Mudgee Lamb.
A number of local charities and groups will be supported from funds raised from the event, including the Mudgee Rugby Union Club and Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

About the Mudgee Region
The Mudgee Region is the third largest grape-growing region in NSW, one of the oldest wine regions in the state and is just a 3.5 hour drive from Sydney. Encompassing the towns of Mudgee, Gulgong, Kandos and Rylstone, the Mudgee Region offers a sensory feast of food, wine, art and cultural events. The Mudgee Region combines country towns, historic buildings and a thriving café scene with boutique markets and galleries to explore.
Mudgee, meaning ‘nest in the hills’, is set amid rolling countryside and offers more than 40 family-run cellar doors to discover. The region is surrounded by several national parks and world-heritage bushland and landmarks, able to be explored on foot, by car or by bike.
Kandos is located in the Capertree Valley, and was established in 1913. It is a small town surrounded by the beauty of the Mudgee Region.
