    Fantastic Wine Pairing Lunch
    Fantastic food and wine pairing lunch. The wonderful chef, Kat prepared the food in front of us, which was very tasty and beautifully prepared. The wines were fantastic too. You sit around a table of 8 and get to meet people as everyone chats in between courses. It was a very fun afternoon which I highly recommend.
    Thank you so much for leaving such a lovely review of our new Pinnacle Tasting Lunch. We are so glad you enjoyed this experience with Kat - we are delighted to be able to offer something a little different for our guests to enjoy both our beautiful Pinnacle wines and Kat's delicious food!

    Ross Hill Wine Tasting
    The team are lovely and friendly, there are plenty of wines and something to suit everyone. We went as Katrina and I sell for the Ross Hill Winery as Wine Brokers and they welcomed us with smiles and open arms. They were happy to see us and we were happy we stopped by. Bigger groups catered for and on a nice day outside options to sit as well... Thanks James, Felicity & Lexie for a lovely tasting. Jayne x

Ross Hill winery has very friendly staff and are great hosts.Had a lovely afternoon to celebrate a birthday. The wines were first class..but the tasting plate was a real disappointment. Two of our party couldn't make the event and we were charged $33 per head to cover the extra cost of the two that couldn't make it. Two of our party were non drinkers but we're still charged the same amount.
As a group we were all very disappointed in the tasting plate and considered that it was not value for money. I would not recommend this winery for a function and as there are other wineries in the Orange area that may provide better value for money.

Hello, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate the feedback and take it on board. I'm glad to hear that you found our staff friendly and had a lovely afternoon celebrating a birthday, we always endeavour to deliver a great experience to our guests. I am very sorry to hear that you found the tasting plate disappointing, this tasting is designed as an accompaniment to the wines, rather then as a platter but I appreciate the feedback. We do offer custom packages for functions and can tailor a menu to suit any requirements, we hope that you will consider us again in the future as we would love to host you.

We chose the wine and matching nibbles package at $25 each, and we loved it.

We were promised at least 7 different wines with a matching nibble for each - we ended up being offered 9 different wines, so had a great opportunity to sample a significant portion of the vineyards range.

We started with bubbly with olives, and finished an hour and a half later with cab sab matched with chocolate coated pepitas—the other combinations on the way through were great. Our hostess was very generous with her time and knowledge, ensuring an enjoyable and educational sojourn. Highly recommended

My husband and I booked the tour before our wine tasting. James was very informative and entertaining and proud of what he has achieved. We had preordered the tasting plate and it really enhanced the wines. Definitely worth a visit when you are in Orange!

Great location, views, inside is spacious with quality furniture and all round great setting (nice artwork, good window views).

The tasting was great, 7 wines (with other wines poured to try them out too), accompanied by a platter. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

We came back with 20 bottles aprox, and a club membership. Would definitely recommend to others.
Thanks for a nice experience!

The best winery for wine, customer service and authentic staff. The wines where and are amazing. This would be my place to wine taste, do a cooking class, have an afternoon in the sun with friends, have a function.

After doing 12 wineries and reflecting on what we saw over 4 days this winery is at the top of our scoring.
Thankyou Brenda (Belinda) and I love the TL (LT) Chardonnay.
Good work gorgeous girls you make your bosses proud!!!

Visited Ross hill over the June long weekend for a tasting.
Great wines and good service.
However our experience was marred at the end. we found out when paying, that the tasting fee was non refundable towards bottle purchases.
This was despite the website and tasting brochure stating otherwise.
Happy to pay for tasting, but would have appreciated the transparency.
Left the cellar door with a sour taste.

Hi Y6416YObryanh, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed our wines and the service, we always strive to deliver a great experience and we are so happy to be open again after what has been a tough few months! Yes you are right, we have recently changed our policy on the $10 tasting fee being redeemable, the new Covid 19 restrictions state that we have to provide each patron with 7 glasses per tasting as well as many other new rules, meaning that for us; there is a lot more work and staff required to ensure we adhere to the new rules whilst also delivering a quality experience to all of our guests. I apologise that we haven't had the chance to update the changes on our website and brochures, it has been a very difficult couple of months with Covid 19, resulting in our having to close for several months. We were so elated to be able to open again, but as you can imagine, it has been quite the whirlwind. Feel free to contact us directly if you would like us to arrange to send you a cheque for the $10. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review.

Visited over the June long weekend as it was the first time we were allowed to travel regionally. We were so glad that we made the choice to book in to visit Ross Hill Wines. A fantastic way to spend time tasting wine and taking in the fantastic ambiance. The cellar door staff are extremely polite and knowledgeable about their products. The wines are first class and extremely good value for money. Would totally recommend to anyone wanting to have an experience while in Orange

I chose this venue for our wine tasting this holiday due to its proximity to our accomodation and also because of the reasonable tasting charge ($10 per person). We spent almost an hour and a half tasting all 14 wines available and learning a lot about this wonderful family owned winery. A must do in Orange.
