Weekend In Orange 2018

What a glorious weekend with perfect Classic Car Motoring weather!

37 members and friends joined us for what was a weekend filled with beautiful country roads, lovely local food and wines.
 Meeting at Glenbrook we convoyed in Classic Italian Made style to Lithgow and then onto Mayfield Vineyard set among the rolling hills of Orange. Enjoying the local wines, grazing at a table of nibbles and taking in the scenic views. 
Our next stop was Stockman’s Ridge a lovely vineyard with a stunning tree lined driveway where we settled in for a picnic lunch. Here we tasted the local wine which complemented beautifully with all the lovely food prepared by our members and guests. Spending the afternoon in and around the vineyards, soaking up the sunshine of the day!

Before sunset we all convoyed to our Hotel for a well-deserved rest before heading off to dinner at The Hotel Canoblas with more eating and drinking. 

Sunday was another spectacular day with the weather even milder than the day before. We head to Rowlee Wines, where we were welcomed by the owners Nicole and James who gave us a rundown of their single vineyard winery, tasting their exceptional wines. 
Next we headed to the Lake Canoblas Reserve where we took some lovely photos of our Classics with the lake as the backdrop. 

Finally we head to our lunch destination Borrodell Winery which is set on the picturesque slopes of the extinct volcano Mt Canoblas and is one of the highest vineyards with spectacular views over the Towac Valley.

Here we had an exceptional lunch, a 3 course seasonal menu from products sourced locally and from the Orchard in the vineyard. Here we all enjoyed the culinary delights of this wonderful restaurant. 

This concluded what was a special weekend with great weather, great drives, good food, wine and most importantly great company.
