I've only ever wanted to be a winemaker. I've been doing it now for 35 years - that's a good thing!I still love it. It's what gets me up in the morning, puts a smile on my face and provides the drive to keep doing it better and better.I can't separate any one part of winemaking over any other – it's the diversity of the activities from being on the tractor, amongst the vines, harvest, winemaking, bottling & packaging, marketing, selling and telling the story of Australian, NSW, Mudgee, Lowe, Louee and Tinja Wines that are all part of what I do.I want to take these grapes that I grow, get them in a bottle with as little intervention as possible and get them to you with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of excellence. Making great wine in a good year from lovely vineyards is easy. There are also years where it's tough for all in the industry, and as an organic grower and maker we have few weapons; this is when age and experience also helps.The pinnacle is good wine. I don't want to tell you that it's hand crafted or boutique produced or estate bottled, while it is all those things it is more important to me that it is honest and free of jargon and allowed to be - wine! Wine to be shared with friends and food and enjoyed not worshipped.I also love telling and teaching about wine. That's one of the reasons you're likely to see me at our Cellar Door. It's why I've started the Lowe Wine club to ensure our enthusiasts get our rare and museum releases along with the ‘Lowedown' three times a year.Drop in, drop me a line, enjoy a drop. David Lowe

I haven’t been to Mudgee for quite some time. Went for the half marathon and noticed it was sponsored by Lowe wines. We decided to go and check out the cellar door. Wow, what an amazing experience! We were greeted by “Shane” who introduced himself and made us feel very welcome and at home. We were only going to taste... More

Beautiful Landscapes, pity the staff arent as nice. Was in a group with an older couple ( we are early/mid 20s ) and the woman who was guiding us barely gave us a second glance. And walked away with the other couple for their sale when there was plenty of other staff to assist. Talk about stereotyping. Wont be coming... More

we arrived late morning and Matthew, our tasting guide, was very welcoming. We enjoyed a very pleasant morning here, and decided to stay for a lunch of antipasto platter it had been the plan to move on to other vineyards, but loved this place so much and was so relaxed that we finally drove away mid afternoon

We arrived and it looked lovely , but....... they had fires in drums and the smoke was drifting all over the out door tables. We ordered the platter which we were informed was between 2 ( $30) what an overpriced snack!!! I asked if I could have just a glass of wine - no you had to purchase a bottle!... More

I have been to Lowe wines many times. There wine is amazing and service is great. The tasting platters however are not amazing and have definitely declined in the past years. Not great value for money. If you're after a beautiful setting and great wine only, this is the place to go.

Attended here with friends. We booked a table which I believe is the way to go given it's popularity. We ordered hot meals and 2 bottles of wine. Looking out at the Vineyards whilst the kids ran around the farm like environment. This is the second time we have been to Lowes and will attend again. The service is very... More

We called in here on our recent weekend getaway to Mudgee and stayed for a lot longer than planned. This place is a great spot for not only wine tasting but a beautiful lunch as well. Four of us shared 2 lunch platters - would have to be one of the best lunches l have had in a long time.... More

Great winery, good wines, lovely grounds and view. Very welcoming and staff are very informed on the wines. We stayed for lunch - the platter was great, loved the fires, kept us warm over a long lunch with good warm. Highly recommend.
