The beauty of sitting at a table with a bunch of strangers where you are sharing the same food and wine experience as everyone else around you, what can often happen is by the end of lunch you have a new bunch of friends with shared stories and hilarious moments. This magical setting was such a perfect environment with our new friends, both local and from Sydney, we all wanted to keep the magic happening.
Michael McHugh, MiNDFOOD, 2021
The Orange wine industry already holds a strong understanding of its region in terms of climate, elevation, soils and temperature to craft high-quality wines expressing place. Winemakers are honing in, but all the while still experimenting, on all these factors – which makes it very exciting to watch (and taste of course).
Amy Northcott, Gourmet Traveller Wine, 2021
Orange has always been a food basket, with its fertile, volcanic soils making it the ideal spot to site vineyards for cool-climate wines like pinot noir and chardonnay, as well as thriving orchards. Local, sustainable, super-fresh food has long been a hallmark of the region
