About Ferment

THE ORANGE WINE CENTRE AND WINE STORE

OUR STORY

Housed in a carefully preserved heritage building, Ferment the Orange Wine Centre, has a sleek contemporary European interior emphatically announcing that the Orange wine scene has arrived. Traditionally a more boutique region than some of Australia’s major wine-producing belts, Orange has retained its historic charm and interest while quietly benefiting from modern winemaking methods.
