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.

Their Cellar Door is located in the heart of the historic village of Millthorpe.

Open seven days a week, they love to meet people to share their passion and knowledge for the wines from the family vineyard.

They also change into a Tapas Wine Bar on Saturday nights from 5.30pm to 9pm, and for after work drinks and nibbles on Friday evenings to 7pm.

Their philosophies of small lot selection and hand management in vineyard and winery; use of native yeasts and enzymes; and slow maturation and natural cold stabilization in the second winter combine to extract every last bit of goodness that the ancient volcanic soils can provide. It takes two years from bud burst to bottle but the results are wines that have taste and texture.
