Mollydooker Wines was awarded 2019 South Australian Business of the Year at the Telstra Business Awards last night.
In what was a double delight for Owner/Operator and Chief Winemaker Sarah Marquis, Mollydooker Wines was awarded the winner of the ‘Medium and Making Waves’ category, as well as taking out the top award of 2019 South Australian ‘Business of the Year’ at last night’s Telstra Business Awards.
Both awards recognise the most innovative, entrepreneurial and high achieving small to medium business in South Australia.
Sarah says, “out of thousands of entries across Australia, only 24 South Australian finalists were chosen, so it is a tremendous honour to be a finalist, let alone the winner.”
The process of transforming a family-run business into a successful global brand has been a life changing journey for Sarah and hundreds of people around the world.
“It’s an exciting and challenging industry and since building Mollydooker Wines I’ve come to understand my ‘why’ in life, and that is for Mollydooker to be known as the best winery in the world,” she says. “Building and running this business has been such an amazing experience and has given me the opportunity to enrich the lives of my team and many others around me.”
Named after old Aussie slang for a left-hander, Mollydooker is a family-owned winery, led by Chief Winemaker and 2018 Owner/Operator of the Year (Australian Women in Wine Awards) Sarah Marquis.
So far, Sarah has seen 13 vintages of premium wine stem from her iconic McLaren Vale winery, producing 70,000 to 100,000 cases annually, and exporting 80% of itmostly to the US.
Using their success to help others, Mollydooker is dedicated to sharing its good fortune with their sponsorship of three schools through Transform Cambodia, as well as their ongoing support for the Hutt Street Centre and Mercy Multiplied.
