Why are they so fabulous?
If sustainable wine production is as important to you, as it is to us, then the first thing you should know is that Ross Hill Wines are Australia’s first National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) certified winery and the only Australian producer of carbon neutral wines. Not bad, eh?
But these industry leaders don’t just focus on their environmental credentials. Hard work, passion and dedication are the key themes of Ross Hill Wines, with the end goal always to produce exceptional quality and elegantly refined cool climate wines.
The Cellar door has a modern interpretation on country style – complete with fireplaces! Go behind the scenes of a working winery and enjoy a complimentary winery tour at 10am each day. Or if you fancy yourself a bit of a foodie, then make sure you book in and indulge in a ‘Barrel and Larder’ cooking class.
Which wines should you try?
Ross Hill have one of the more extensive portfolios in the Orange Region, and their wines are grouped into their premium ‘Pinnacle’ series, their ‘Family Series’ – all individually named after the grandchildren – and their fabulously labeled ‘Pistol Packin’ Momma’ entry-level wines.
As well as a lovely sparkling Blanc de Blancs, in the whites you can try a range of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. In the reds, start with the regionally famed Pinot Noir before moving into elegant shiraz, cabernets (both sauvignon and franc) and there’s a lovely cab franc merlot blend too.
