Posted 08 March, 2017

At the recent Declaration of Vintage celebration, our winemaker Andrew Quin was awarded the prestigious Barons of Barossa 2017 Winemaker of the Year.

Held on the third Sunday of February every year the Barons of Barossa declare the vintage in a unique and colourful ceremony, paying tribute to past Barons who have many stories of achievement and announcing the winners of the Viticulturist and Winemaker of the Year.

Andrew joins an elite class of Barossa winemakers and further cements himself as one of the best and consistent young talents in the country. “I think it’s a pretty tough job for these guys picking a winemaker every year, this community is bursting with great winemakers…. I’m obviously incredibly honoured to be the person selected for this great award in 2017.
