One of Mudgee’s oldest bars, Roth’s Wine Bar is a fun and welcoming establishment with a buzzing atmosphere and delicious food. With their quality food being locally sourced matched with their live entertainment every Friday and Saturday night, this favourite watering hole for locals, winemakers and visitors alike is a must-see when visiting Mudgee.
We HAD to start the night with a bottle of local Mudgee Ridge wine to get our
buzz appetites going.
A nice little knosh before the real food came out, the local olive oil had a delicate and mild flavour that really accentuated the plethora of nuts and spices in the dukka.
To be honest, I was a little apprehensive about this meat jello. I’ve had terrines before and countless tonnes of pate but the ratio of jello to meat had me wondering. Luckily the jello had a subtle lemon flavour that was surprisingly refreshing considering it was a terrine. I particularly enjoyed the accompanying chimichurri which added a burst of herby aromatics to each bite.
The crispy skin of these golden thighs encased some really moist and tender meat. Perfect to eat right off the bone, whilst the crunchy slaw made for an excellent accompaniment.
Holy Moly this was awesome. Roth’s most popular dish are these generous hunks of pork. Tender and moreish, they cut like butter despite the crispy skin on top. Adding to the crunch are some delicious little pork crackle chips that simply melt in your mouth. The salad is great for refreshing the palate after all that rich savoury flavour.
After a meal like that what more could we ask for? A cheese board of course! What a splendid way to end a night of great food and lots (and lots!) of wine. The cheeses were locally sourced from High Valley Cheeses with the star being the brie which oozes naturally, making it creamy and luscious.
The vibe and atmosphere was on fire with the live singer of the night pumping out some pretty great tunes. All in all for our first night out in Mudgee we had a fantastic time. The food was great and the staff were friendly and attentive. It’s places like this that really show the sense of community Mudgee has, where everybody knows everybody and everybody is welcome.
