In 2016 Rex D’Aquino commissioned the Patrono Series to commemorate the achievements of his grandfather and 70 year of being in the wine industry of Orange. Rex has released Super Premium wines from the cool climate region of Orange in NSW under THE PATRONO SERIES.
The Orange Region is at the forefront of cool climate viticulture in Australia, where cool temperatures during most of the growing season, coupled with dry Autumn conditions, are ideal for growing high quality grapes. The Fruit ripens slowly, intensifying colour and flavour, ideal for premium wine making. Highland Heritage focuses on the key cool climate grape varieties of the region and are our flagship wines.
Orange is a cool climate region with the added benefit of an elevation ranging from 600 metres to just under 1200 metres. This has a profound effect on the resultant wines, producing sophisticated and alluring reds and elegant well structured whites.
