DESTINATION ORANGE, NSW

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. Join us in March for the Newcrest Orange Challenge, the debut of one of Australia’s most exciting new cycling challenges and May sees us celebrating the Orange Apple Festival (yes, we grow apples in Orange). 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!

Stories of Orange, NSW

Charlie Svenson from De Salis Wines

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. We see ourselves as minimalist winemakers at De Salis – like a great chef who will choose the best produce in season and artistically develops the flavour, enhancing but not changing its uniqueness and regionality.”

Ed Swift from Printhie Wines

Printhie Wines was the inspiration of Jim and Ruth Swift, who planted 12 hectares of grapevines in 1996. These days, sons Ed and Dave Swift manage the day-to-day business operations under the watchful eyes of Jim and Ruth who have now taken up the role of Special Project Managers. A role that involves lots of travel, lots of dining out and lots of benchmarking.

James Kendell from Small Acres Cyder

“The style of ciders we are making have been around for hundreds of years in Europe. They are true, fermented wine styles that reflect the location and season and are made to go with food. We source all our apples from within five kilometres of the cider house.”
