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.

Ross Hill Wines

Home  -  Places to goWineries

Ross Hill Wines is a family run and sustainable operation established in 1994 by Peter and Terri Robson, with son James and his wife Chrissy now taking over the reins. The Ross Hill Vineyards are planted in mature basalt soils, at a high altitude that carries through into the iconic wine range of whites including Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc, and the BIG red styles of Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Ross Hill Winery’s Cellar Door has been expanded with a fabulous modern design interpretation on ‘country style’ by local designers and artisans. It is simply a beautiful spot to taste exceptional wines. Surrounded by green vines, singing birds and glorious open skies, you’ll have to pinch yourself to be convinced it is not a dream! If visiting during springtime, you will find yourself surrounded by orchards of sweet, white cherry blossoms.
