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.

On a glorious site, high above the bustling city and overlooking lush countryside, is Borrodell Vineyard, a country retreat amongst the grape vines - one of Australia's highest.

Borrodell Vineyard is nestled in the lee of Mount Canobolas on the slopes of the Towac Valley. It is an 84 acre vineyard, cherry, plum and heritage apple orchard and trufferie. Ten minutes from Orange and adjacent to Lake Canobolas, the rich volcanic soils and 1000 metre elevation ensures the best of cool climate wines and produce. The cellar door is open seven days for tasting the award-winning cool climate wines.

Accommodation available on the property includes two self-contained cottages set amongst the vineyard and the orchard, and two exclusive eco-suites designed for couples.

Sister’s Rock Restaurant is located at the top of Borrodell Vineyard, overlooking the Pinot Noir block.

Head Chef Richard Learmonth leads the Sister’s Rock Restaurant team. His passion for Borrodell’s local produce features in his menu, showcasing all the in-season delights from the orchard and surrounds. Their philosophy of food has developed around a love of the variety of produce grown on the estate and what’s available in regional Australia. Come and try his delicious cuisine for yourself.
