More information on Orange Area

Located west of Sydney, surrounding the city of Orange, the Orange wine region is home to some of Australia’s best cold-climate wine producers and over 60 wineries that you can visit for an unforgettable wine tasting. Within its territory, you will be able to admire picturesque countryside sceneries, with orchards and vineyards nestled high in the undulating hills and valleys of Australia’s central Great Dividing Range, no lower than 600 meters (1,968 feet) above sea level.

Unlike other Australian wine regions, the first modern vines of Orange were only planted in the 1980s. Nevertheless, during your visits to Orange’s wineries, you will have the opportunity to taste great examples of cool-climate wines that reflect the region’s unique environment, like its spiced Shiraz wines, or its elegant Chardonnays. Orange was recognized as a Geographical Indication in 1997 and is one of the only two in the country - together with the Adelaide Hills - that is defined by elevation.
