  • This is situated 12 km west of Orange in the highly prized Nashdale region.
  • Soils are the classic Red Basalt Kraznozems of Mount Canobolas.

  •  The vineyard was planted in 1986 -1988 and is one of the oldest in Orange.

  • Canobolas Smith Chardonnay and Canobolas Smith Alchemy [Cabernet blend] are two of the most sought after wines from the Orange wine region.
  • They can be found on the wine list at renowned Sydney restaurants such as Aqua Dining,  Buon Ricordo , Pilu Freshwater and Sixpenny Stanmore.
