We look forward to the Orange F.O.O.D. Week every April. It’s autumn and it’s that time of the year when the city is at it’s most beautiful with the leaves turning gold and orange and red. It’s a relaxed and wonderful celebration of the food and wine or the region. J.M.
This great event has grown over its 30 years into a spectacular showcase of everything that the Orange Region offers the lovers of fine foods, fine wine, and delicious produce and is Australia’s longest-running regional food event.
Premier food festival of NSW There will be lots of brunches, lunches, and dinners. And one will be able to meet and talk to the local producers, chefs, and providores. There will be farm tours, food-themed art events, and markets. (F.O.O.D, in this case, is Food Of Orange and District)
The region has over 43 wineries and cellar doors for you to visit. Here we showcase some of the cool climate wines that are making the region famous. At many cellars doors, you will be able to meet the winemaker and hear of their passion for their wine and of our region. They will explain how our unique combination of altitude, cool climate, soils and topography provides Orange Region wines a unique point of difference. J.M.

Moving mountains is the story of Borrodell Vineyard.
As a young man in 1965 Borry Gartrell purchased the property which was at the time in a state of disrepair. The indigenous people must have looked on in horror as the once fertile the land had been cleared and ploughed exuberantly in the best European tradition. As a result much of the topsoil moved down the slope. Borry’s first task regenerating was to haul tens of thousand of meters of soil back up the slope from whence it came.
An ancient island of bushland rising up out a a sea of agriculture, it is rich in wildlife and history and a great place to go camping, birdwatching and bushwalking. Read More about “Weddin Mountains”…
