FOOD + WINE WEEKENDS, ORANGE NSW
Previous Experience

Description

Wine Australia has recently declared the Orange region as ‘Australian wine’s new flavour of the month’ :

“It’s fair to say that the [OrangeNSW] wine region and its wines are destined for big things. The refinement, elegance and balance these wineries routinely produce are just what consumers want and as the number of wineries grows, vines age and winemakers learn more about their sites, the sky’s the limit.”

UK wine writer, James Flewellen also believes that Orange is the hottest spot in cool-climate Australia.
