About
HOOSEGG, located in Orange NSW, was just voted 15 in the Top 100 wineries in Australia! HOOSEGG is the dream that winemaker Philip Shaw has been working towards for nearly 60 years. Philip utilises parcels of select fruit from the Koomooloo vineyard which he established 30 years ago. The cellar door at Koomooloo with stunning views to Mount Canobolas offers by appointment tastings only.

Great experience hosted by Philip himself.
He told us about the background, history, and motivation behind Hoosegg, and about the wines.
All the Hoosegg wines were available for tasting, and Philip tasted with us.
We were charmed by his down-to-earth, unpretentious, humorous attitude, coupled with his vast experience and legendary status in making great wines.
The wines were beautiful, but the experience priceless.

We were honoured to sit down with Philip Shaw himself to discuss and taste the world class wines he makes at Hoosegg.
It was a special visit that had even more significance for us, as we’d been there seven years earlier and remember the fantastic impression that was last left on us.
This time around, and with an even more prestigious offering of wines, we were not disappointed.
It was fantastic to be able to sit with Philip (and Luca his lovely dog we remembered from all those years back) and even have him try his wines along with us (a rare sight), and hear him story.
The wines are breathtaking, and we walked away with a half dozen to cellar for special occasions.
This is an experience you must do when in Orange!

The wines are very, very good but the key drawcard here is to spend time with Philip Shaw himself. For someone of his vast experience and knowledge he was remarkably patient with dumb questions and comments. With so few people at the tasting, Philip engaged in real conversation, and this was not just sales patter but a world-class winemaker speaking passionately about his life's work. We attended a tasting on the first weekend they were open. No doubt the few technical issues to do with the sales process have been ironed out by now. Christine was excellent with her communication all the way through and could not have been more helpful in sorting out our small problem. It's not cheap, and the best wines are pretty pricey, but this is an experience you won't regret paying for.

It felt like something of an honour to visit Hoosegg and spend time with Philip drinking his beautiful wines and listening to him explain his philosophy. It was sad to hear about how the fires affected the previous growing season but lovely to learn of the coming together of the various wineries to help each other in a difficult time. This was my favourite of our winery visits that weekend due to the intimate nature of it and the beautiful views out over the landscaping that Philip has achieved there.

A tasting session with Philip is a must-do on any trip to Orange. Apart from the quality of the Hoosegg wines, the background info and general conversation made it the best part of our trip. Exceeded our expectations and was a memorable experience.
Thanks Philip
