Hours: Weekends and public holidays 9am-5pm, Wed- Fri 9am-3pm.
Grape variety Viognier is the cornerstone of the wines we produce. Terry was one of the first vignerons to plant Viognier in this area in 1999. It is a very old grape variety from the Rhone Valley, France that was almost extinct as recently as 30 years ago. We are one of the few Orange Wineries who have successfully shown Viognier as a straight varietal, a co fermented blend with Shiraz and as an ice wine style dessert wine. The Mountain Ice has won an ice wine international trophy in 2009 and now exports into China.
We produce wines under our Orange Mountain and Manildra labels from Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes. Liqueurs from apples and cherries, and Verjus (a non-alcoholic cooking product), that is a perfect substitute to vinegar or even lemon juice in many dishes and summer salads. Terry and Julie Dolle
