The winery’s winery manager, James McBride, said it was a bittersweet day for him and the winery community.
“This winery has been very important to us over the last five years and this is a bittersy day for all of us.
We are very excited to be celebrating this winery win and the wonderful community it has created,” he said.”
I can’t believe it’s actually been a day where we haven’t had a winery award.
It’s been a long time coming and we’re so excited to see what this win will mean to our community.”
The win is one of five wineries in WA awarded gold medals by the Australian Wine Council in the winemaking industry, the organisation announced.
The award will be given to a winemaker who has successfully produced at least 20% of a win’s production value, the winemaker’s share of the win price and the amount of winery profit.
It is the fourth winery gold medal for WA and is the sixth gold medal won by the State of Western Australia in the Wine Industry Awards (WIAA) in the past five years.
The WIAA awards are part of the Australian Government’s winemaker awards program.
