ORANGE AND DISTRICT FOOD AND WINE GUIDE
Your guide to the best food and wine in the Orange NSW District. No visit to Orange is complete without checking out the fantastic cellar doors and farm gates, delicious local produce and retail experiences offered in the Orange region.
The relationship between food and wine is very closely entwined.
The Orange region is a significant, diverse and rich area of primary production. It also helps that everyone works together so well.
Making wine in Orange is exciting. The grapes maintain a high level of acid and fruitfulness all the way to harvest. Orange has the soil and cool climate to achieve tight complexity and finesse of the fruit which makes for extraordinary wine. The Orange wine region is defined as the area above 600m in the local government areas of Orange, Cabonne and Blayney. Grapes have been grown in the Orange district since it was settled in the nineteenth century. The first commercial production of table grapes followed the arrival of the railway in 1877. The modern development of the wine industry in Orange began in the early 1980s.
For over a century, the Orange region has been a productive source of orchard fruit, beef, lamb, grapes, venison, honey, nuts, berries and many other products. We value our regional produce and of course, wish to enjoy it with family and friends.
This together with a spectacular rural landscape and a vibrant restaurant and cafe scene, make Orange an exciting destination for wine and food tourism.
We welcome you to explore the many cellar doors, farm gates and retail outlets stocking local produce where you can meet with the producers and share their story.
