We have now achieved in just a few short years an amazing 11 Trophies, eight of which were achieved last year.
2016 was truly a great success for us with a total of 8 Trophies won. We won our first Trophy of the year for our Coco Sparkling at the Australia & New Zealand Boutique Wine Awards, this was followed by a staggering 6 Trophies at the Clare Valley Wine Show winning, "Best Dry White" other than Riesling" for our Fiano, "Best Rosé of show", for our Temptress Rosé. "Best Dry Red Wine" and then the overall "Best Red Wine of the Show" with our first vintage Montepulciano. We were further awarded as "Best exhibitor of Show" and "Best Small Producer".
The year culminated with an Australia & New Zealand Winestate Wine of the Year Award for the "Best Alternative Red Wine of the year" for our Montepulciano.
We won a further Trophy for our Wicked Stepmother Fiano 2016 from the Winewise Championship.
Our not yet released 2017 Wicked Stepmother Fiano has also won a GOLD medal and our 2011 Riesling is now in the Trophy taste off later this year with Winestate Magazine.
