Diploma of taste
At the Old March School Cellar Door you will be taken on a short vineyard walk with a glass of Chestnut Garth Sparkles for a briefing. Return to the Braeview room to participate in an aroma challenge and blind tasting of 5 varieties of wines. Your brief learning experience should allow you to correctly identify each of the blind tasting wines. Taste other wines in our portfolio matched with cheeses and fruit before receiving your diploma.
Allow 90 minutes. The cost is $90 per person and take away wines are available from the cellar door. Minimum of 6 people per group. Booking
Picnic in the vineyard
Take our seasonal picnic hamper and a bottle of your own selection of Mortimer’s wine for some romantic time together in one or more of our vineyards. We have comfortable scenic vista’s overlooking the dam taking in the Chardonnay, Shiraz or Cabernet vineyards. There is a picnic table at the lake shack and tables under the trees. Make our vineyard your own for the afternoon. Cost per person is $60 plus your own selection of wine, beer or soft drink. Bookings essential. ( 2 hours)
Hire a fire
Pre-book your very own camp fire site and spread out with your family and friends whilst enjoying an afternoon of relaxing with a wine tasting experience. You can pre-book a picnic cheese platter for this experience. Cold beers, wine and soft drinks can be purchased to enjoy as the afternoon air starts to cool and the warm smell of the fire takes over. Cost for the fire site including wood and bench seating is $50 per person and is suitable for up to 10 people. Bookings essential. (Allow 4 hours)
Music in the Vineyard
We regularly have acoustic music at our cellar door during the growing season from 1pm until 4pm. Orange has a very vibrant and talented pool of musicians from which we choose from to suit the occasion. Our website will constantly update the talent a month in advance. You can reserve a table in multiples of 8 by pre-booking right here. The cost to book a table is $10 per person which includes wine tasting. Singles and smaller groups are still very welcome to visit. (All afternoon)
Note: There is a wine tasting fee of $10 per person. This fee is redeemable with the purchase of a bottle of wine.
