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.

  • Horton Vineyards Rkatsiteli Orange County 2007


    When doing research on the wineries we were going to visit in Virginia we knew Horton Vineyard was already on our list. What I did not know is they produced Rkatsiteli.
