Highland Heritage Estate
A warm welcome awaits you at Highland Heritage Estate Cellar Door, located at the gateway of Orange NSW Vineyards.
With a start in a tin shed in 1946, Carmelo D’Aquino, produced six barrels of wine and became the first winemaking family in the Orange district. Carrying the tradition forward the third generation Rex D’Aquino in 1988 purchased a 125 hectare property on the outskirts of Orange, which included one of the first commercially planted vineyards in the area, Highland Heritage.
A Cellar Door and premium Restaurant and Function Centre followed in the late 1990’s. The most recent addition is the construction of a state of the art Heliport.
The Cellar door vista is expansive, overlooking the Summer Hill Creek Valley towards the original “Wellwood” homestead that was constructed in the early 1840’s. The Highland Heritage Estate vineyard was once a part of the original “Wellwood” run.
Our vineyard grows six varieties of red and white grapes, the wines are available at our cellar door which is open seven days a week from 10:00am until 5:00pm.
Come and elevate your senses, taste our wines and soak up the unique atmosphere.
Highland Heritage Estate offers the complete wine and dine adventure for those looking to experience great food and wine from the region. You can enjoy a relaxing wine tasting at our cellar door or have a regionally inspired meal or function in our restaurant with spectacular views of the vineyard and surrounding hills of Orange.
