About Us

The Winery

Naked Lady vineyard is situated in the Mudgee Wine Region, 2.5 km south of Rylstone, NSW, on the Bylong Valley Way.

Our vines were planted in 2000, The Cabernet and Chardonnay ideal for our cool climate. Mike and Diane Quaife purchased the vineyard in 2013 to complete their dream of owning and producing their own wine. A whirlwind introduction via YouTube, some invaluable advice from the previous owners and a fantastic winemaker has led to us producing some award winning fine cool climate wines.

At the vineyard we offer wine tasting, lunch platters and pizzas, and we have guest accommodation in our home.

Rylstone is the ideal place to visit for a weekend and if you are lucky enough to have a pilots licence you can now fly into Rylstone Aerodrome. We will be happy to pick you up and bring you to the vineyard for a relaxing lunch or if you wish to stay check out our accommodation. We will then drop you back to the Aerodrome.

Our Name

So why did we choose Naked Lady Wines?

Amaryllis belladonna, known as Naked Ladies or Belladonnas. They’re South African bulbs that come from the western side of the Cape, Naked Ladies get their name from the habit of flowering before the foliage in autumn. They send up sturdy spikes of flowers (either pink or white) which have a delicate apricot aroma.

As far as hardy goes, these guys are the ultimate survivors. When you plant them, you plant them fairly high so that only their necks out of the ground – this is because they actually like to bake and they need the heat to flower well.

They’ll grow without any soil preparation and they’ll flower without supplementary watering – in fact if watered, they probably won’t flower. They can be a bit temperamental when first planted however and you may not get flowers for the first couple of years.

So why are we called Naked Lady Wines? Because, the Naked Lady Lily grows abundantly throughout the vineyard.
