We are proud to be an Official Wine Sponsor of this year’s Surfest.
More than an iconic surfing competition showcasing some of the world’s most talented athletes, Surfest is a fun and lively celebration of the Hunter Valley and all it has to offer.
We are delighted to announce that our First Creek 2017 Winemakers Reserve Chardonnay has won the James Halliday 2018 Chardonnay Challenge - Best Hunter Valley Chardonnay. Find out what Mr Halliday had to say about our wine and all the other amazing Chardonnay winners here:
To celebrate, we are launching this 'award-winning' wine in our Cellar Door this weekend!
Congratulations are in order for our Senior Winemaker, Rauri Donkin, who has been selected to attend this year’s Len Evans Tutorial.
Rauri will join 11 other scholars in what James Halliday described as “the most exclusive wine school in the world.”
The annual Tutorial runs for a week in the Hunter Valley and invites a range of Australia’s most elite wine professionals to enhance their wine knowledge and appreciation. Great, old and rare wines are opened, sampled and critiqued so scholars can learn the demands of wine show judging and quality.
