ALL ABOARD THE VINO EXPRESS ⋆ Silver Compass Tours
The Vino Express is one of the Orange Wine Festival’s signature events, and this year Silver Compass Tours has been asked to work with festival organisers to design and deliver a wine and food connoisseur’s dream itinerary. And that’s a challenge we’re willing to accept!
We are designing a signature package of exclusive and premium local food and wine experiences for this year’s Vino Express tour group, with a focus on meeting the wine-growers and wine-makers of the cool-climate Orange region to find out what makes it so special. HINT: it’s all in the altitude.
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.”

ALL ABOARD THE VINO EXPRESS 2017!
The Vino Express will depart the Country Platform of Sydney Central Station on Friday 20 October at 7.18am (please arrive by 7am with plenty of time to spare, the train leaves on the dot). We will arrive in the cool-climate wine growing region of Orange at approximately 12pm, and will whisk you off immediately for 3 days of incredible food & wine festival experiences.
This includes immersion in two of the Orange Wine Festival’s signature events, the Festival Night Market and the perennially popular ‘Wine in the Vines’ progressive cellar door day of local cool-climate wine discovery.
The 3-day packaged and hosted tour also includes: 2 nights’ centrally located accommodation; a sparkling Vino Express breakfast; behind-the-scenes exclusive & boutique wine tastings; local dining experiences; and a walk and talk tour of a holistic vineyard.
