Orange Wine Festival - Done and Dusted

Another successful Orange Wine Festival 2017 has come to a close.  With signature events all sold out including our own humble little event the Pilgrimage of Elevation, Orange is becoming a hub for wine and food travel and why not! It's a picturesque place with rolling hills and fantastic locally grown produce!Pilgrimage of Elevation Wrap - Our guests were met in town by Justin Jarrett, vigneron and owner of See Saw Wines, who then joined them on the trip out to the first vineyard Annangrove Park at an average elevation of 750 metres above sea level. Hopping off the bus in the middle of the  vineyard - the prosecco block at 745 mtrs, everyone was treated to a crisp chilled glass...

A PILGRIMAGE OF ELEVATION FOR THE 2017 ORANGE WINE FESTIVAL

The winemakers and viticulturists of the Orange region, in Central Western NSW, regard altitude — and therefore many of the climatic conditions that they grow their grapes in — with an almost religious zeal.

288km in a harvester can really test your patience!

Vintage is upon us. Travelling between 3 vineyards - the convoy is slow going up and down the hilly lanes and main roads of Orange. 30 mins by car is 1 1/2 hours by tractor!   The fruit is coming off clean, flavoursome and fast! So fast we have chaser tractors carrying 2 x 1 tonne bins and 2 tonne bins flying through the headlands, utes with 1/2 tonne bins scrambling back to hand pickers in the opposite block. It's all hands on deck as we wrangle and manage where to go next! B-double semi after B-double semi roll in and out, flatbed trucks and utes then drive them off to wineries all over NSW. Tom from Swinging Bridge and his dad are in the thick...
