Orange wine region
The cosmopolitan town of Orange in Central NSW is one of Australia's most notable food and wine destinations. Orange's beautiful vistas, incredible produce, hatted restaurants and award winning wines are a potent drawcard for foodies and oenophiles alike.
To be classified as ‘Orange’, grapes must be grown 600 meters above sea level and higher. See Saw wines have 3 vineyards with varying altitudes of 650m to 900m above sea level. The Orange region is perfect for growing and producing quality wine. A combination of geology, soils and a cool climate combine to produce grapes and wine with an elegant yet distinct flavour.
The Orange climate perhaps plays the biggest part in giving Orange some distinct natural advantages - the cool temperatures during the growing season coupled with dry autumn conditions are ideal for grape growing. It’s this extended time until ripening that brings out the best in our wines.
Mount Canobolas, an extinct volcano is also an important geological feature. Providing rich basalt soils, it's altitude also creates a micro-environment ensuring we capture much needed rainfall.
