The wines of Climbing are sourced from Orange, the Australian wine region in New South Wales, located approximately 125 miles west of Sydney on the slopes of the Great Dividing Range. Defined by altitude, as well as by soil type and other more common traits of terroir, Orange begins at 1,965 feet (600 meters) above sea level, and is one of Australia’s highest and coolest wine regions. Orange is noted for intense sunlight, which, coupled with the cool growing season, results in wines of great finesse and longevity.
The name Climbing is an active reference to our high vineyard and our continual quest for adventure. The passion of winemaker Philip Shaw has unleashed the potential of the vineyard and the region.
