Relax in our sophisticated, country luxe lounge area, take a stroll along the lawn (with games for kids and big kids), and taste our seriously cool, cool climate wines. Meet and have a chat to our friendly and award-winning wine-growers to find out what makes the #OrangeNSW wine growing region so uniquely special. It’s all in the altitude.

The team at Brand Orange will be present to tell you all about the upcoming Orange F.O.O.D Week festival, which is Australia’s longest running regional food festival and runs this year from 8-17 April.

The Orange Wine Festival is also a great excuse for a visit in October, but don’t forget that every week is food and wine week in Orange so visit us anytime!

Justin Jarrett from See Saw Wines

A recognised pioneer of the Orange region’s viticulture industry, Justin is the proud owner of See Saw Wine – one of the region’s most successful biodynamic vineyards. He believes the phenomenal and growing success of Orange as an emerging food and wine destination has been in its promotion through events such as the Orange Wine Festival and Orange F.O.O.D Week. “Orange is a cosmopolitan region. If we all still can stick to improving our quality, delivering the truth of it, and working together the region will continue to leap ahead.”
