Region Showcase: Canowindra

Known colloquially as ‘The Air Balloon Capital of Australia’, it doesn’t take a bird’s eye view to see the great range of wines on offer from the Canowindra region.

Being both a neighbour to the Orange Wine Region and a part of the larger renowned Cowra Wine Region, Canowindra is a location just waiting to be explored.

Nestled lower in altitude between 260m-520m when compared to Orange’s lofty altitude of 600m and above, it’s a wine area with a terroir of warm days, cool nights, and dry late summers which combine to bring perfect conditions for grapes to ripen and reach their full potential. Canowindra is also a leading region in the practice of organic and biodynamic production.

We’ve been big proponents of Canowindra wines. They offer some of the best value wines in NSW. Have a look at some of the best the region has to offer.
