Orange region wines have been given a thumbs-up from Sydney's International Convention Centre which has revealed they make up more than 25 per cent of its wine list.
The ICC has moved to having only NSW wines in its 2020 Wine Collection.
It previously had about 80 per cent NSW-produced wine but has now moved to sell and promote solely wine made in the state.
ICC Sydney's Beverage Operations and Cellar manager William Wilson said Orange wine was playing a big role for the centre.
"We're proud that wines from Orange make up over a quarter of our 100 per cent NSW-produced 2020 Wine Collection," he said.
"[We're] championing their wines to a global audience of over 1.4 million guests who attend events at ICC Sydney each year."

Mr Wilson said the wines on the list had been curated after a blind tasting of more than 400 wines.
Orange wineries to feature on the list included Tamburlaine, Philip Shaw, Swinging Bridge, Printhie (and its Swift's sparkling wines), See Saw, Colmar Estate, Angullong, Logan, Ross Hill and Rowlee.
Small Acres Cyder also has products on the ICC Sydney list.
Mr Wilson said Orange produced some top quality wine.

"For a small region Orange punches well above its weight when it comes to producing world-class wine," he said.
"From exciting sparklings to aromatic whites and rich reds Orange's cool climate and talented wine makers combine to produce some exceptional drops."
As part of the NSW-wines promotion the ICC has also made a four-part documentary video series highlighting NSW wine production.
ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy said they were creating a stronger relationship with regional producers.
"We opened our doors with a clear promise to put regional winemakers first, and a first wine menu comprising 80 per cent NSW wines," he said.
"We are proud to increase this commitment to 100 per cent and launch a compelling new docu-series which share the important stories behind these bottles.
"In doing so, we not only further our commitment to serve our guests the best drops in the world, but also support and champion our region's producer at a time when they have faced unprecedented challenges."
The ICC Sydney move has won praise from the state government.
Minister for Jobs, Investment and Tourism Stuart Ayres said it was building the international reputation of NSW wines. "It is fostering growth opportunities for those who are increasingly having to tackle and adapt to [farming] challenges."
