Checking the weather...

Tucked among rolling, vine-covered hills, outback paddocks and winding country lanes, lies Orange NSW wine country. Home to more than 60 vineyards and 40 cellar doors, discover a lacework of wine trails leading to an impressive range of wineries and vineyards, each with their own unique charms.

A range of first-class cellar door experiences await. Find beautifully restored historic buildings such as century-old bluestone stables and barns, repurposed to house rustic cellar doors. Gaze upon the picturesque Towac Valley from one of the highest altitude vineyards in Australia, or take the children along to discover a delightful petting zoo as you taste wines at one of the most photogenic cellar doors in the region.

Orange wine tours are also a great option for your gastronomic and vinous journey. Have a local winemaker give you a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on behind cellar doors or for a completely immersive experience, let a boutique tour operator create you a bespoke itinerary.

Visitors won’t want to miss dining at a number of truly exceptional vineyard restaurants, or simply graze from generous platters of local produce between tastings.

Be sure to check what events may be on during your stay. There are many events at Orange wineries held throughout the year, both as part of the highly popular Orange Wine Festival but also held independently. Try a class at an on-site boutique cookery school, or a more opulent experience such as a mid-winter truffle hunt followed by a black-tie degustation feast.

Koomooloo Wines

Philip Shaw Wines are sourced entirely from Shaw's 47 hectare Koomooloo Vineyard. Purchased in 1988 and planted in 1989 on red loam over limestone, this cool climate vineyard rises to an altitude of 900 metres (2,950 feet).

Shaw's search for an Australian region capable of making classic wines with elegance, depth and bright fruit came to rest in 1988 when he discovered the undulating hills of the high altitude, cool climate region of Orange.

This immaculately tended vineyard has already produced the Prix D'Excellence Chardonnay at the 1998 VinExpo in Bordeaux and the Best Red Wine at the 2002 National Wine Show in Canberra. The fruit from Koomooloo has clearly defined varietal character that displays elegance, power, and length.
