Well, the Cowra Wine region may have 4 organic producers, or 25% of its wine producers certified organic, but the Orange wine region has one of Australia’s most successful organic wineries with Tamburlaine’s certified organic vineyard at Borenore.
Rosnay and Tamburlaine are now teaming up with the famous Union Bank restaurant and bar in Orange to produce a unique wine and food experience comparing the natural styles of the Orange and Cowra wine regions, as the “eco-gastonomical highlight” of Orange Wine Week.
The food will be organic wherever possible, including organic vegetables from small producers in Orange and Canowindra, and featuring braised lamb fattened on the Rosnay vineyards themselves for the main dish!
The wines will be some of the most expressive and natural wines to come out of the two vineyards, including Tamburlaine’s Sparkling Blanc de Blanc 2009, Reserve Riesling 2008, and Reserve Syrah 2008, and the Rosnay Sparkling Shiraz Rose 2009, Unwooded Chardonnay 2008 and Triple Blend 2006.
Cost: $95 per person including wines
Date: 30 October 2010, 6.30pm for canapes and sparkling wine
Where: Union Bank, Cnr Byng and Sale Sts, Orange
