Orange Food and Wine
Orange’s events calendar is filled with fantastic food and wine festivals throughout the year. Taste the district’s best local produce during F.O.O.D Week in April, and sample its finest drops at the Orange Wine Festival in October and November. The region celebrates its rich apple growing history during the Apple Festival in May.
Taste the cool-climate wines that Orange is renowned for by downloading a cellar door map and visiting the region’s top wineries such as Angullong, De Salis, Phillip Shaw and Ross Hill. Local heroes in white wine varieties include chardonnay, with a growing following for the region’s sauvignon blanc and riesling. In red varieties, the maturing vines deliver a soft shiraz as well as exceptional merlot and cabernet sauvignon.
The Orange Farmers Market is held on the second Saturday of each month and showcases the best in local produce including artisan bread, cheeses and gourmet preserves. Locally-grown and handmade produce can also be found in the town’s providores and stores including A Slice of Orange and The Agrestic Grocer. Pick luscious berries in season at Huntley Berry Farm, or visit Mandagery Creek Venison for a farm tour and cooking demonstration.
Orange is home to several outstanding restaurants. Lolli Redini and Racine at La Colline have both won awards for their stylish contemporary menus. Enjoy a meal overlooking the slopes of the Towac Valley at Sister’s Rock Restaurant located at the top of Borrodell Vineyard, or head to Union Bank Wine Bar for casual dining. In Millthorpe, visit the award-winning Tonic restaurant, or pick from the seasonal menu at the Old Mill Cafe and Restaurant.
