Caldwell Lane, 2800
Australia View map

The dream started long before the acquisition of Koomooloo (vineyard site) in 1988. Philip spent years investigating and exploring many regions within Australia until by accident Philip noticed the undulating roll of the countryside when flying over the Orange region. After a few days of intense research into this highland area he returned the next week to find the region had a near-perfect balance of elevation and sunshine. The adventure began when Philip purchased the land for his Koomooloo vineyard in June 1988. In close proximity to the region’s highest peak, Mt Canobolas, Koomooloo vineyard rises to an altitude of 900M with red loam soils over limestone.The details > 20 years to find another 20 years to grow. > Koomooloo - 47ha vineyard planted by Philip and family between 1988 - 89. > The vineyard peaks at an altitude of 900M on the side of the extinct volcano Mt Canobolas. > With less than 1% of Australian vineyards above 600M, Koomooloo is one of the highest vineyards in Australia Read more »

    Wine review by eeldraw

  • What's the worst wine you have ever had? I had some Don Luciano Shiraz over the weekend (which is a $4.00 wine I picked up at Wal-Mart...just to see). I had had the Don Luciano Chardonnay and it was OK, but the Shiraz I had smelled like road kill (very heavy sulfur)--I wonder if I got a bad bottle.  Has anyone else tried it? Read More
