Welcome to Canobolas~Smith Wines
Welcome to Canobolas-Smith Wines, a small family company making premium quality wines from our six hectares of vineyard on the northern slopes of Mt. Canobolas near Orange, New South Wales.
The vineyard was established between 1986 and 1988 and is comprised of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
All the vines are unirrigated, close-planted, hand pruned and hand picked to optimise fruit quality.
At Canobolas~Smith we take an artisanal approach to wine-making. No compromises are made at any stage of the process. All fruit is picked in small batches at optimal ripeness and carefully sorted before processing. We take great care to allow the wines to reflect both the vineyard and the season as much as possible, whilst maintaining a certain “house style”. Only the finest French oak is used during maturation and flavour is retained as much as possible through minimal use of fining and filtration.
We have a relaxed and welcoming cellar door, which is open 11.00am – 5.00pm Saturdays and most long weekends. Fridays and Sundays are also good, but please phone for an appointment first. If you are visiting Orange and wish to make an appointment to see us during the week, please call 02 6365 6113.
The Cellar Door and Winery is located 12km west of Orange on Boree Lane (just off the Cargo Road).
