Château Tanunda is celebrating this week with good news for both the winery and Senior Winemaker.
Results are in from the Berlin Wine Trophy 2020 winter tasting, and the iconic Barossa winery has been crowned “Best Australian Producer 2020” for the tenth time in the past eleven years.
The Berlin Wine Trophy is recognised as one of the largest wine shows in the world, and the award has been warmly welcomed by proprietor John Geber.
“There are over 13,000 entries from 40 countries with producers only sending their very best wines. It is by far the most important in Europe, and recognised around the world,” says Geber.
“To be able to show that consistency of quality throughout our wines over the years in one thing, but to be named the best our 130th year is even sweeter.”
The Berlin Wine Trophy ‘Best Australian Producer’ announcement comes just days after Senior Winemaker, Neville Rowe, was named in the Master Winemaker Top 100 in the highly-regarded UK wine publication: The Drinks Business.
Neville was named alongside a who’s who of world wine in the inaugural “The Master Winemaker 100 of 2020” which celebrates the top 100 award winning winemakers of the Global Masters series.
“We are ecstatic for Neville to be getting this recognition he deserves. He has made some incredible wines in the last 5 years. We estimate there are over 100,000 winemakers in the world and only 16 from Australia made it onto that list,” says Geber.
“Neville undoubtedly deserves his place there. Our wines have been going from strength to strength under his watch, from the Grand Barossa wines all the way up to our 100 Year Old Vines.”
“Make no mistake, we all do our part for the company’s success, but our Master Winemaker Neville Rowe and his winery team are the heroes of this win in Berlin.”
