Initially known as the Central Highlands, the Orange region, centred on the slopes of Mount Canobolas, has long been an important orchard area producing apples, pears and cherries. An experimental viticultural station was established at nearby Molong in the 1940’s, but vines were first planted commercially in 1980. Due to restricted opportunities for irrigation, major vineyard development has slowed since 2000 and much effort is now being put into raising the profile of the region on the national and international stage. The region is home to many small premium operators. The climate is strongly influenced by and largely dependent on elevation. Overall, mild to warm midsummer mean temperatures, seldom rising above 32°C (90°F), are offset by cool to very cool nights during the growing season. The rainfall predominates in winter and spring while the three driest months are February, March and April, making supplementary irrigation highly desirable. Wind is both friend and foe.

  • Climbing Wines Shiraz Orange 2005


    The twist of a screw top reveals a musky aroma of leather, violets and a trace of vanilla on the nose. There is a fruity blueberry and plum taste on the swirl which communicates a definite structure replete with surprisingly stiff tannins. Seductive and smooth, this offering still appears to be young in the bottle with additional cellaring re... Read More

  • Horton Vineyards Pear Orange County Pear Port NV


    This is the only pear port I have been able to find and thus I give it 4 "stars" for originality and good taste. We had a pear port in a similar looking bottle, tried this one and it wasn't it... however... we were happily surprised and this one is a keeper. It's super sweet and a little thick- I have been told that it's a great base for sangria! Read More
