Welcome to Mortimer’s family vineyard
After retiring from his Rugby League career at the Canterbury Bulldogs, Peter and Julie Mortimer moved to Orange with the desire to raise their 5 young sons in the country. After purchasing 45 acres just north of Orange, Peter put the family to work, planting a vineyard in 1995. Following years of hard work and a growing passion for the wine industry, the first Mortimer’s wines were bottled in 2001. The Mortimer family property (named Chestnut Garth) sat behind the old March Schoolhouse which had closed its gates in 1976. After purchasing it off the local council in 2007, it was converted into the Mortimer’s Wines Cellar Door.
The rich 150 year history of the March Schoolhouse has been preserved and makes the perfect setting to taste our wide range of award winning wines.
We welcome you to our little piece of paradise…

Cool Climate Wines of Orange
We grow Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Merlot at our Chestnut Garth Vineyard and source Sauvignon Blanc grapes from a neighbouring vineyard.
These grapes are transformed into stunning cool climate wines by master wine makers Simon Gilbert and Chris Derrez.
Central West NSW
Crossing over the blue mountains, Orange is located 3.5 hours drive west of Sydney.
Mt Canobolas is an extinct volcano and has furnished the region with many parcels of rich basalt soil. The volcanic soils, altitude and large temperature ranges provide arguably the best cool climate grape growing conditions in Australia.
