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.”read more
