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.
Now Ferment’s state-of-the-art Enomatic wine dispenser allows visitors to sample and purchase a range of exceptional local wines, either in-store or online, all carefully curated by The Wine Man himself, Peter Bourne. The cellar door for Black Wines, Carillion Wines, Cook's Lot Wines, Darragh Wines, Gartelmann Wines, Faisan Wines, Madrez Wines, Montoro Wines, Rosnay Organic Wines, Roaring Fork Wines, Tallwood Wines, Topers Wines and Zinga Premium Vineyard. Ferment’s full selection showcases wines from the Central Ranges of NSW and beyond, inviting patrons to experience a wide range of local wines while exploring the heart of Orange. The township is an excellent place to start your wine tour, with Ferment’s wine list the perfect introduction to the region’s greatest drops.
As with any dedicated wine venue serious about its mission, matching the wines with our ever-changing cheese board or salumi board. Better yet, buy a bottle, hire a bike and find yourself a pretty spot in the countryside for the perfect picnic.
