We wandered in on a rainy afternoon and left with 6 bottles of great wine after a fun tasting of lots of local wines. The staff were enthusiastic, listened to our preferences then tried to match wines that we would like. A thoroughly enjoyable time.

We recently discovered Ferment in Orange. A fabulous decor and lovely hosts, we enjoyed a wine quickly before it closed at 8pm. Next time we will arrive earlier and enjoy a cheese platter. Very friendly staff.

Walked in hoping to learn a bit about the local range of wines. Instead we were ignored for a good 10 minutes before a staff member greeted us. Having explained what style of wine we liked, we were offered two samples and then ignored again...More

Great concept snd Tansey is a gem. First time visit for me. Recommended to me by visiting family who absolutely loved it. Fantastic wine selection and the charcuterie board was perfect. Loved the 'serve yourself option'. Will definitely return.

Save heaps of time by visiting this centre instead of individual wineries. Plenty of wines available for tasting. Some of the more expensive wines are kept in controlled environment with argon injection to slow the wine down from spoiling. Management is knowledgeable and attentive. Found...More
