Stockman's Ridge Wines has the vision of producing premium cool climate wines. The idyllic bush setting which is Stockman's Ridge is situated just north of Bathurst in the Central Ranges of NSW at an altitude of 900m, this included with our Orange vineyards, typifies what many believe to be the most exciting new wine region in Australia.
The Orange wine region is defined as the area above 600m. Mount Canobolas, an important geological feature also plays its part, not only giving the district its rich basalt soils but also, because of its altitude, giving greater reliability to the rainfall. Overall the region has some excellent natural advantages. The climate and soils also influence the selection of varieties for planting. The region is planted to 60% red wine varieties and 40% white wine varieties - which says something about the region but also about what the national palate is drinking in the 21st century.
Pinot Gris, Shiraz, Sauvigin, Sauv Blanc, Zinfandel, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv and Merlot
