It's one of Australia's iconic festivals: a combination of fine wine and chamber music in the country.
The Huntington Estate Music Festival in Mudgee runs over two weeks; the opening weekend on November 18-19 and the full festival from November 22-26.
World-class chamber music concerts are held in Huntington Estate's intimate barrel hall, while wine and food are served in the lovely winery grounds before, during and after concerts.
Concerts are held over long, lazy days and at night.
The line-up for the 26th festival comprises a mix of international talent and outstanding Australian musicians performing some classics of chamber music.
Tickets include a full music, food and wine experience and start at $175 for the opening night. They are also available in two-, four- or eight-concert packages.
The setting and atmosphere are promoted as "rustic, relaxed and unpretentious" with a stage made of wine crates and pallets, and a backdrop of a wall of barrels holding maturing red wine.
Concerts are held late mornings (followed by lunch) and evenings (followed by dinner).
Afternoons can be spent exploring the lovely town of Mudgee and its cellar doors, galleries, cafés and shops, enjoying bush walks or indulging in a restorative afternoon nap prior to the evening concert.
