The Stories of Orange, NSW – meet our local producers & winegrowers
As a food journalist, Sophie Hansen has had a career that has taken her all over the world working on market leading and niche publications. She met Orange venison producer, Tim Hansen, at an event in Sydney and their whirlwind romance saw Sophie leaving the city for the country – ‘without hesitation’.
Some years later, with two young children, Sophie was chatting to a friend – a magazine editor – who suggested she keep her ‘hand in’ by continuing to write through this stage of her life and the blog ‘Local is Lovely’ was born.
Local is Lovely is a collection of recipes, stories and resources for people who love farmers and eating locally. A best-selling recipe book, monthly lunches at the Mandagery Creek Farm Kitchen, editorial and photography are all certainly keeping Sophie busy.read more
Justin Jarrett is a pioneer of the Orange Viticulture industry and proud owner of See Saw Wines. Born in Canberra, he then moved to Young to run a geese farm and grow cherries. In 1991, Justin moved to Orange to continue running the geese farm but he was also looking for a new project. His lifelong ambition was to run 10,000 sheep at the back of Bourke but he has instead invested his time and passion in one of the regions most successful biodynamic vineyards.
Justin completed a degree in Systems Agriculture, which was based on Holistic Agriculture and ground breaking in its time. The degree prepared Justin for his future career path and coupled with his interest in organics and biodynamics it has according to Justin “ formulated the way I think and see the world”.read more
Charlie Svenson is the owner and winemaker of De Salis Wines, and his first love for food was from the sea. As a master fisherman, he ran a lobster and barrumundi boat in the Torres Strait, which also doubled as a floating store to the isolated populations in the region.
Charlie’s love for wine meant he was habitually bending the ears of his friends about his passion – yet the move to winemaking seemed for Charlie, beyond him.
‘I was the beer brewer for the parties on campus, but craving to dabble in winemaking. When I turned 40, my mates gave me a barrel and told me to get on with it – make wine – they were sick of hearing about my viniferous dreams.’read more
