Orange Food Week

Central NSW

This hilly, and sometimes mountainous, region boasts more wine regions than any other in the State, and is a large producer of cool climate fruit and vegetables. Celebrations of local food and wine abound. Orange, at the base of Mt Canobolas, has 'F.O.O.D Week' (April) and 'Orange Wine Week' (October). Mudgee holds it's 'Wine & Food Festival' in September, and Bathurst's 'Wine & Music Festival' is in March. The Hilltops area around the cherry town of Young entertains visitors during August with the 'Hilltops Cellar Door Lunches'. Nearby Cowra showcases local food and wine with 'Cork & Fork' in November.

The Mountain Run Trail

Author: Taste Orange

Created 09th Mar, 2015

One of the most picturesque, and highest, wine trails to be found anywhere. On the high volcanic basalt slopes of Mt Canobolas and wandering past the beautiful waters of Lake Canobolas this is truly a wine trail to savour. Here you will find some of the best cool climate winemakers in Australia who took notice of, and learnt from, the high quality orchardists that had been growing premium quality fruit here for many years prior to grapegrowing.


Mountain Wine & Cider

This looping trail heads out west from Orange to Borenore then down Borenore Lane and back to town. A longer loop allows picturesque farmland views. Three premier wine producers on the way, and a great cider maker. A perfect half day outing.
