Hunter Valley abound with NSW #topwines.

Celebrate with us at Outstanding on the Pier and Hunter Valley Uncorked Balmoral!

 

The Hunter Valley – Australia’s oldest wine producing region, has scooped an amazing near 50% of the award winning NSW #topwines at this years NSW Wine Awards 

 

148 wines were judged to be of Silver and Gold medal standard, which is unprecedented in the history of the NSW Wine Awards, which have been running since 1996. This is testament to the top quality wines being produced across the state, however the Hunter Valley is celebrating much more than the success of the state as a whole. Seventy one of the NSW #topwines hail from the Hunter Valley, which is just under half of the wines given Silver and Gold Medals. It is an incredible achievement for the region which continues to prove its status as a premium winemaking region.

 

The 71 #topwines from the Hunter Valley stand alongside other wines produced by 68 of the State’s best wineries – quite an outstanding line up which represents an incredible cross section from NSW’s wine regions.

 

Consumers have two fantastic opportunities to taste these award winning #topwines from the Hunter Valley at two upcoming events in October and November; Outstanding on the Pier and Hunter Valley Uncorked Balmoral.

 

The world class consumer event “Outstanding on the Pier” accompanies the NSW Wine Awards, and is held on Thursday October 30th at Pier 2, Walsh Bay, Sydney. Showcasing all 71 Hunter Valley #topwines, and offering an opportunity to meet, and discuss the wines with the winemakers themselves this event gives Hunter Valley wine lovers the chance to celebrate our successes with us!

 

Then, on Sunday November 2nd the Hunter Valley graces the shores of Balmoral Beach at the annual Hunter Valley Uncorked Balmoral food and wine event (11am – 5pm). Family and friends alike can delight in the award winning #topwines from the Hunter Valley with a picnic in the spring sunshine – let’s celebrate the 71 #topwines and start the silly season a little early!

 

What an incredible achievement for the Hunter Valley – we invite you to celebrate with us at Outstanding on the Pier and Hunter Valley Uncorked Balmoral.
