We were first introduced to Canobalas-Smith Wines at Ferment Wine Bar in Orange and we knew we had to get out to the vineyard. Wines are on the expensive side, but that are quality, so definitely worth it.

The wines are great and as we were the only people tasting at the time we got a very personal tasting session. The Alchemy and the dessert wine were our favourites and we're looking forward to enjoying the ones we bought with some special meals.

One of the original Orange winemakers. Ol' Aussie salt of the earth, rustic service from Murray! Wonderful! Good wines, great price and worth the experience. The local jam was also good! Only open on Saturday, so make sure you pencil it in!
