Cargo Road Vineyard Established 1983 at 860 metres on the sheltered northern slopes of Mount Canobolas near Orange NSW. The vineyard is planted on deep red basalt soils allowing it to be unirrigated. Cargo Road Wines are all estate grown. We have believed in sustainability since 1983 and took this further with the introduction of Holistic Management in 2013 taking a regenerative approach to Viticulture and Agriculture, as we only custodians of the land.
