Orange, Australia - 900m altitude

High Altitude. Cool Climate.

Orange is one of the more special wine growing regions of Australia in part due to high altitude.

A cool climate region can be defined as an area with heat degree days of 1600 or less. Cool nights in the growing season, large diurnal variation, long cool autumns and distinct seasons are also key factors in defining a cool climate region.

Orange is one of a handful of regions in Australia that fall into this category. Orange is unique among these regions due to the cool climate being the result of continental conditions rather than latitude.


We have some very unique prevailing conditions on our vineyard site at Koomooloo. Our secret to making the most of this is our respect for this patch of earth, it’s changing climate and the way we respond to the elements. We pair our understanding of Koomooloo with decades of experience, hard work, conviction and we keep an open mind to creative thinking.

Koomooloo is volcanic in nature, something that the mountain continually reminds you of. There is a divide on the vineyard between younger and older basalt soils. The majority of the vineyard is 12 million year old olivine basalt, overlaying deep limestone. 400 million year old Fairbridge basalt border the property adding to the complex character of the vineyard.
