Small, certified organic vineyard and tasting room producing cool climate wines and vermouth.
Oranje Tractor Wine is a small 8-acre vineyard on the pristine south coast of Albany that was planted on the family farm in 1998 with the help of family and friends and has been certified organic since 2005.
Regenerative farming techniques are used to avoid the use of synthetic chemicals, instead relying on natural systems that drive carbon from the atmosphere into the soil. This increases soil biodiversity, fertility, water retention and produces nutrient-rich crops. It also lowers their carbon footprint enormously.
A combination of mild summers - which allow the grapes to ripen slowly and develop intense flavours, hand-picking and meticulous winemaking by Rob Diletti (2014 Australian Wine Maker of the Year), has culminated in a five-star rating by James Halliday and numerous awards.
You can enjoy a variety of tasting experiences in their rustic tasting room. Wine Flights showcase five Oranje Tractor wines paired with local cheeses and other fresh, seasonal produce. The Trilogy is a seated tasting of three wines.
The Silver Service Wine Flight celebrates local seafood paired with Oranje Tractor wines with their finest linen, silverware and vintage wine glasses.
All tastings are seated, and you will be guided by owners Pam and Murray and hear about the transformation of a beef cattle farm to a diverse organic farm with edible gardens and orchards sprawling in all directions.
You are welcome to BYO dog and picnic.
