Orange is a favourite winemaking region of Bad Boys, having worked at different wineries in the area.
For those who don’t know the area, it snows! In other words, it’s bloody COLD even for winter!
It’s just over 3 hrs drive over the Blue Mountains from Sydney. The area offers not only great wine but is also a foodie destination. The wines from this region are distinctive – they have a lifted floral nose.

Normally $25/bottle. Our price is $17/bottle per dozen – 32% discount.

Huon Hooke rated this wine as No. 9 of the top 50 Australian Pinot Grigio’s in 2020.
The grapes were machine harvested in the cool night to ensure minimum loss of fruit freshness and juice aromatics.
The bouquet has fresh apple and lemon characteristics.
The palate has complex fruit flavours with a very nice clean acid finish.
A great seafood wine.
