Falls Wines was established in the year 2000 to produce and market wine from grapes grown at the Falls Vineyard, Canowindra which is situated in the Central Tablelands of New South Wales approximately 20 kilometres north east of Cowra and 4 hours drive west from Sydney. Historic Canowindra is a pristine example of a town bearing the hallmarks of wealth supported by both gold mining and wool production in previous centuries with its heritage-listed main street. The region is favoured by a general abundance of water provided by the Lachlan and Belubula Rivers and boasts rich soils which gave rise to the cultivation of many crops such as lucerne and canola and a variety of vegetables. More recent times have seen the establishment of a number of vineyards.
The Falls vineyard nestles in a valley on the outskirts of the township with gently undulating slopes from the top of which Mt Canobolas at Orange is clearly visible to the north. It is one of the most picturesque properties in the region and is an ideal environment for producing premium fruit, evidenced by the wine it produces – the proprietary brand “Falls Wines” – being available at many fine dining establishments and boutique wine shops in Sydney and surrounding districts.
The Canowindra region was also where the infamous bushranger Ben Hall and his gang often roamed looking for rich pickings from the goldfields and stagecoaches. He was notable for holding the township hostage, barricading it from the police while courting favour with the residents by providing free beer from the local pubs.
