In Orange, we make wines that people like to drink. In a world of warming, increasing pace and excess, Orange provides the cool climate, the patience and restraint to produce world class wines of balance and finesse. Like all of the world’s great wine areas, Orange’s unique climate and geography is the key.

 

Altitude is essential. As night falls in the warmer months, so does the temperature and the sun’s ripening work of the day is tempered as vines are allowed time to rest and reflect. This gradual process allows us to build flavours slowly and ripen grapes well into Autumn...
a luxury that allows us to pick fruit at its peak.

 

Soil too, plays a crucial role. Whether it’s the volcanic basalt of Canobolas or red-brown clay of further afield, Orange’s soils provide a rich and fertile environment in which vines can take deep roots and thrive.

 

As the world’s collective palate moves away from over-ripe, heavy and jammy wines, Orange is in a key position. The Orange area continues to attract some of Australia’s great winemakers – reinforcing the belief of visionaries before them.

 

Cellar doors offer as diverse an experience as the personalities that pour their wines. More often than not it is the hand that crafts the wine that pours it for you with a smile.
