Brangayne Of Orange is a distinguished boutique winery in the Orange wine region, renowned for its premium cool climate wines. Established in 1994, Brangayne stands out in the Central West NSW for its commitment to producing distinctive wines that reflect the unique terroir of the area. The winery's creators, Simon Gilbert and Will Gilbert, skillfully craft a range of wines including Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, and Sauvignon Blanc, amongst others.
Located on the northeastern slopes of the extinct volcano Mount Canobolas, Brangayne benefits from the region's cool climate, ideal for the production of wines with intense flavor, acid, and elegance. The winery's history is deeply rooted in the Hoskins Family, who transitioned from orchard farming to viticulture in 1994, guided by Dr. Richard Smart. Today, the vineyard is managed by David Hoskins, continuing the family legacy.
