HISTORY

Canobolas~Smith Wines is one of the oldest and most significant producers of premium wine in the Orange region.

The vineyard and winery was established by the Smith family in 1986.  After a lengthy search for a site with the ideal combination of climate, soil and aspect to be able to create great wine, their search led them to the northern slopes of Mt Canobolas near Orange NSW.

The vineyard sits at an elevation of 850 metres, on a north-facing site with rich volcanic soil and excellent air drainage.  It is planted with mainly Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, with small amounts of Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Petit Verdot and Semillon

Canobolas Smith is still one of Orange’s most significant producers.

Our flagship red blend, “Alchemy” is also regarded by many as ‘THE’ red wine of the Orange district.  It is a combination of the very best barrels only of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz.
