AOPA Australia member Phillip van Gent, extends an invitation to AOPA Australia members, family and friends to the second Flying Event for 2019 – a visit to the Pieter van Gent Winery, Mudgee to be held on Saturday March 9, 2019.  Make it a day trip or combine it with a visit for a few days.

Enjoy a picnic lunch in the pleasant outdoor area.  Each picnic hamper will include a bottle of Pieter van Gent wine which can be selected from the cellar, cheeses, meats, fruits and salads, all sourced from local producers.  Also included will be a wine tasting, along with an opportunity to experience port and chocolate pairings or cocktails.  Staff from the winery, will conduct an informative talk about the history of the winery, along with providing their expert advice on what to taste and or buy at the cellar door.  More information on Pieter van Gent Winery can be found at

Pilot and passengers will enjoy the flight to Mudgee, which overflies the spectacular Blue Mountains.  A return flight can comfortably be done in a day in Piper Warrior or Cessna 172 type aircraft from Sydney as Bankstown to Mudgee is 107 nautical miles direct.

Cost of the picnic, wine tasting, chocolate and port pairings and airport transfers between the airport and winery will be $100 per person.    Pieter Van Gent Winery also offers several accommodation options among the grapevines if you wish to come for the weekend or stay a few days.
