The Hidden Sea won gold at the 2021 People’s Choice Drinks Awards in the UK — taking the crown for the most coveted category: “Wine Passion: The Story Behind the Label.”
The South Australian premium wine company is now a well-recognised sustainable brand that is creating more than just bottles of wine.
Co-Founders Justin Moran and AFL Hawthorn legend Richie Vandenburg created the sustainable premium wine company to give back to South Australia’s marine ecosystem.
The Hidden Sea focuses on educating, captivating and celebrating the South Australian community. Through their story they hope to inspire and encourage others to embrace the beautiful Limestone Coasts and thriving ocean life.
“Thank you to everyone who voted and supported us. The Hidden Sea has a clear purpose: One Wine. One Mission. To remove plastic from the world’s oceans. We couldn’t achieve this without the amazing work of our Hidden Sea family, and the entire team at The ReSea Project,” says Vandenberg.
The company is creating a movement through innovation to save our one of a kind coastal environment in South Australia. With each bottle purchased, ten plastic bottles will be removed from the world’s oceans.
With a category created for dedicated, hard-working and passionate wine producers from around the world; wineries were invited to submit a video sharing the stories behind their labels. The Hidden Sea was amongst several Australian wineries including the likes of Taylors & McGuigan, and celebrities like Kylie Minogue, Graham Norton and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Congratulations to Moran and Vandenburg on the award but most importantly, creating a movement that captures the essence of the South Australian community.
