Situated in the picturesque bush settings of the Central Ranges, Stockman's...

Situated in the picturesque bush settings of the Central Ranges, Stockman's Ridge Wines have a vision of producing premium cool climate wines. Nestled in the West of Orange, the vineyard sits at an altitude of 780 metres. Their stunning tree lined driveway and new vineyard lead you to the relaxed and intimate cellar door where you'll discover wines that are a true expression of the unique qualities and character of the region. Wines with elegance and complexity, with beautiful balance and length. Serious wine lovers will find much to absorb them and much to discuss with Jonathan, Owner and Winemaker or the experienced cellar door staff.

We were lucky to have this place all to ourselves when we visited. The winemaker was a great host and happy to explain his wines and history. We bought a few bottles and will definitely come again if we're back in Orange.

Enjoyed a very relaxing time over a 6 week holiday visiting family in Orange. A wonderful place to enjoy peace and quiet and use as a base for the surrounding area. Welcomed from the start and made to feel at home throughout with attentive, but not overpowering, care. The property has been recently refurbished and was excellent. Any suggestions for... More

The wines were pleasant, but nothing to knock your socks off. The tasting room experience was odd. The owner's mother was pleasant and welcoming, but happily admitted she knew nothing about wine. A recipe for a somewhat underwhelming wine tasting experience.

Our visit was not only about wine tasting but increasing our understanding of the industry. The family owned and run business has been built from the ground up and this was a great way to spend an hour or so learning about their journey and future plans. Nice to be able to taste, chat and learn without being served and... More

The owner lady was very accomodating and keen to let us taste the full range of wines. It was a very interesting visit and we tasted some different and enjoyable styles. The Savagnin as a white was a standout as was their 2009 Cabernet Savingnon. Lovely sitting area in front of the tasting area too.

Rodney, Thank you for your all your kind words about our Cellar Door and range of wines. Glad you enjoyed Savagnin, it's a wonderful rare french variety. We look forward to your next visit and to show off a few more of our new wines. I appreciate you taking the time to write this review and I will let my... More
