30 Aug Outstanding in the Vines
Orange’s Angullong Wines is once again hosting its annual ‘Outstanding in the Vines’ lunch as part of the 2017 Orange Wine Festival.
With the success of last years inaugural lunch, Angullong will again open the gates to its vineyard to welcome guests onto their picturesque property on the slopes of Mount Canobolas.
The Angullong Outstanding in the Vines lunch is a roving adventure through the vines. “It’s a restaurant in the vines,” said Angullong’s Ben Crossing. “Rather than bringing the wine to our customers, we are inviting our customers to experience the origin of our wines. It’s all about the story of place.”
The lunch sees guests enjoying Angullong with an open air, long table lunch set within the winegrower’s expansive vineyard on the southern foothills of Mount Canobolas.
“This is a rather unique experience in that we’ll be hosting the lunch in the middle of the vineyard. Many of our visitors have tasted our wines at our Bluestone Cellar Door in Millthorpe and there is always questions about where the grapes are grown.”
Guests are invited to join Angullong with a bus trip from Orange where they will be greeted by the Crossing family at their vineyard at Panuara.
The striking setting comprises the impressive rolling vineyard set within the dramatic foothills of Mount Canobolas. The undulating rows of vines oversee steep hills that drop down to the Belubula River.
A three course lunch set along one long table will be prepared by local cook Jo Robson and matched to a range of newly released Angullong wines including Sagrantino, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Barbera, Vermentino and their flagship wine, the Angullong Crossing Reserve Shiraz.
