The Orange Wine Festival is the district’s opportunity to celebrate its thriving wine industry and quality cool-climate wines, unique to the region. Running over two weeks in October, the program features over 80 events including some much-loved favourites such as the Orange Wine Show Tasting, Wine in the Vines, The Vino Express as well as the highly popular Festival Night Market. This not-to-be-missed event is a wonderful opportunity for friends and family to gather under the grand trees of Robertson park at long communal tables and enjoy fine local cuisine paired with award-winning wines.

These signature events are complimented by a diverse program run by local producers and restaurateurs throughout Orange and its surrounding villages.

The high altitude, volcanic soils and cool Orange weather, makes the area one of the most exciting regions in Australia for winemaking. Orange Wine Festival is the perfect opportunity for wine-lovers of all ages and understanding to get acquainted with the region’s rich and diverse wine and food culture and meet the interesting and talented people who make it happen.
