We are throwing our hats in the air with excitement for this major Trophy win! We have had an amazing year and this last major win of the prestigious Winestate Magazine’s Category Wine of the Year Award for our 2015 Leave Your Hat on Montepulciano gives us a total of 8 Trophies this year. We are humbled and thrilled and the alternatives that have been our passion and raison d"etre are coming into their own.
“Leave Your Hat On" Montepulciano 2015 has also has won two other Trophies this year, Best Vintage Section Dry Red and Best Dry Red of show at the 2016 Clare Valley Wine Show where we won a staggering 6 Trophies.
The wine is medium bodied, aromatic and textural. It is bursting with flavours of dark cherries, plums and berries. Subtle spicy undertones with splashes of herbs lead to good length with savoury tannins.
A triple Trophy wine makes a great Christmas gift at $45 - order through our cellar door or click here to our website.
We are celebrating! Last Friday 28th October we were awarded a staggering SIX Trophies at the Clare Valley Wine Show. With vineyards both in the Clare Valley where we started our alternative wine journey, we also have a vineyard in the Adelaide Hills on which our architecturally designed Cellar Door sits.
We won five Gold Medals for Riesling, Fiano, Rose, Montepulciano and Shiraz that evolved into SIX TROPHIES. It was the most amazing day of our lives. It is more than we could have dreamed of, yet we have always strived for. To win these awards for alternative varieties which is our passion and focus is phenomenal, particularly in the traditional varietal stronghold of the Clare Valley. This is a major win for us but also it proves that alternative varieties as we believe are the future.
The Trophies were awarded for:
Best Dry White other than Riesling – Wicked Stepmother Fiano 2016
Best Rosé of Show – Temptress Rosé 2016
Best Vintage Section Dry Red Blends and other varieties – Leave Your Hat on Montepulciano 2015
Best Dry Red of Show – Leave Your Hat on Montepulciano 2015
Best Small Producer
Best Exhibitor of Show.

We are also the first Adelaide Hills Cellar Door to release an estate grown Prosecco and have just also won Gold for our Gruner Veltliner.
Two very happy owners!
We have just released the first two posters in a series we are producing "Art in a Glass" - these first two by Jen Prior will make an inexpensive stylish addition to your home or work space. Available at Cellar Door $125 each.
Jen's philosophy is simple and uncomplicated,
'…….Artwork should be cathartic. You should look at it and garnish a sense of peace every time you take it in. I’m not interested in creating confrontational or controversial work. I’d much rather create simple, soulful, gently intriguing pieces.'
A Multi-Award WInning South Australian artist, Jen specialises in creating alluring modern artwork.
Self taught , her gentle, radiant, distinctly unique trademark style enjoys a loyal and enthusiastic following around the globe.
Art is for wine lovers. Art should be at the heart of the table, with wine.
Wine and art are neither elite or mysterious. They are both there for our enjoyment and the happy moments in our lives.
So much Fabulousness on its way - a wonderful night back in Canberra with the Fabulous Ladies Wine Society and all those gorgeous fun loving Canberra gals on Thursday 10th November.
Excited to be showcasing our biggest and best line up of alternative varieties ever kicking off with our new Prosecco and all taking place at Canberra's newest hot spot - Otis Dining Hall, Kingston.
Oh what a night ...........!!
