About the Orange Wine Region
The wine industry in Orange, NSW has really come into its own in the last number of years and is starting to make a significant mark on the Australian wine industry. Although the wine production in the area goes back about thirty years, it has only been within the last 10 years that it has started to make a name for itself growing some of the country’s, if not the world’s best, cool climate wines
The Orange terroir is unique in that its grapes are grown in a region of 600m + above sea level. It is in fact the only terrior in Australia to be defined by its altitude. The climate produced from this altitude gives Orange wines their distinct flavours and colour; grapes can be left on their vines longer and can mature more slowly than in warmer climates allowing for a better balance of flavours.
