orange wine region
The Orange Region, a cool climate wine-growing area in central New South Wales.
About 3½ hours drive west of Sydney, across the Blue Mountains, Orange is a regional city full of great wine, great food and lots of things to do. It's a great base for exploring the wine & food of the district.
Because of the altitude, the reliable rainfall and the terroir, it's a great place to grow grapes and make wine – it also makes it a great place to visit. The cool climate makes for spectacular autumns, vibrant springs and mild summers.
And if you are coming in winter – bring a jacket as it does get cold.
