  • Description

    Description

    Clare and Marko have lived at our vineyard for more than 10 years. It was an established vineyard and we have built a winery and cellar door. We are in conversion to full organic certification. It is a 4 ha property with 2 ha of vines.

    We have Warre bee hives, run a small flock of sheep, free range chickens and have dogs and cats as house pets. Our vineyard is managed using organic principles and we are converting the rest of the property using permaculture principles.

    There is no public transport available but we can collect people from Orange, which has train and coach services from Sydney. Meals are shared and vegetarian options are available. Wifi and reasonable mobile reception is available.

We bake our own sourdough bread and make fermented foods and drinks and travellers can practise these skills.
