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.”

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.”
