Swinging Bridge Wines
Swinging Bridge is a winery based around family, striving to produce wines of excellence that exhibit the unique provenance of the Orange region.
From the estate’s position on the slopes surrounding Mount Canobolas (Gaahna Bulla), winemaker Tom Ward’s craft reflects his enduring passion for high altitude winemaking, with a focus on the region’s quintessential varieties: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Embracing innovation while grounded in heritage, Swinging Bridge’s wines are at the forefront of the Orange region’s development into a new frontier of celebrated cool-climate winemaking.
