This Week's Food News - Orange Wine Festival




I spent 24-hours in Orange last weekend taking in some key events at the 2015 Orange Wine Festival.



The highlight of my visit was the Barrel to Bottle Chardonnay masterclass at my favourite winery in the region: De Salis Wines.



Winemaker Charlie Svenson was incredibly candid and generous with both his winemaking techniques, and with pouring his museum release wines. Released on the day I imbibed, the 2014 De Salis Chardonnay is a real standout.



From there I headed to the showground for the Orange Wine Show Tasting, where wines by Patina and Brangayne both caught my attention from amongst a large crop that showed off the diversity of this cool-climate wine region.



This festival runs until November 1 giving you plenty more opportunities to pack up the car and take a drive out to Orange.



Take an esky because the local produce (including Fresh Fodder dips and Trunkey bacon) you can pick up at regional gems like The Agrestic Grocer, is really quite exceptional.



You might also consider letting the kitchen of the picturesque Racine Restaurant show you what you can do with locally grown and raised ingredients.



My hit pick is the upcoming Orange Wine Festival Night Market on Friday October 30, 2015, when fifty wine and food stalls take over Robertson Park.
