Bloodwood - the new tradition

Bloodwood is synonymous with quality fine wine and food of the rapidly emerging Orange Region.

We (that is, Rhonda and Stephen Doyle) planted the pioneering wine grape vineyard in the Spring of 1983. These Merlot Noir vines thrived in the warm, free-draining gravels of Bloodwood. The first vintage, yielding 650 litres of exciting varietal essence, duly followed in April 1986. Over the last three decades, we have cared for and nurtured those original vines on our Griffin Road property.

Today, in their maturity, they offer the best potential for the production of the highest quality, cool climate fruit which is the enduring foundation of all our Bloodwood wine styles. The vineyard now is home to 21,274 Vinifera vines planted on their own roots and covering 8.072 Hectares of the best wine growing site in the wonderful Orange Region of Australia.

Cellar Door


We would love to see you at vineyard but if you can't make it out to Orange you can always buy things from our Cellar Door menu. 


Please remember that we don't like to ship individual bottles because it would add too much to the cost, plus the mailing cartons are more fragile than the larger boxes. We are more than happy to haggle a price with you for a mixed dozen.


This would be a great opportunity to try a range of wines and we could recommend some recipes to suit your selection. 

ps Shipping is free for Australian deliveries.
