ChaLou Wines, established in 2020, is a youthful and vibrant boutique winery nestled in the renowned Orange wine region. Owners and winemakers Nadja Wallington and Steve Mobbs, both hailing from family vineyards, bring their extensive experience and passion to ChaLou.
Their journey began at Charles Sturt University and has taken them through diverse winemaking roles, culminating in the creation of ChaLou. Their wines, including Grenache, Riesling, and Pinot Noir, are a testament to their commitment to crafting expressive and delicious wines, deeply connected to the land.

Here, guests can engage in intimate tastings conducted by Nadja and Steve, providing insights into the detailed processes from bud to bottle.
