Vogue Entertaining + Travel magazine has named Yalumba Winery of the Year for 2001. This annual award, judged by the magazine's Wine & Drinks Editor, Greg Duncan Powell, is based on the quality of wines released over a calendar year.
The Winery of the Year is announced in Vogue Entertaining + Travel's Christmas issue which goes on sale today. According to Greg Duncan Powell, Yalumba's ability to ioover deliverls across its entire range of wines - from the classic Yalumba Galway Shiraz to the premium Yalumba Eden Valley Hand Picked Riesling sealed under stelvin Œ was the primary reason for Yalumba being named this year's winning winery.
"Yalumba makes it easy when buying wine," said Greg Duncan Powell when announcing the award. "Theirs is a stunning line-up of wines - all reliable and all offering great value for money."
Said Yalumba Proprietor, Robert Hill Smith, "2001 has been a big year for Yalumba with a new advertising campaign featuring Jamie Oliver launched last month and the first-time release of several new wines - including Yalumba Adelaide Hills Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Yalumba Hand Picked Riesling, Tri-centenary Grenache, Shiraz Viognier and Yalumba Riesling & Merlot - which have been enthusiastically received by both media and consumers."
"Naturally we are delighted to be named Vogue Entertaining + Travel Winery of the Year for 2001 and believe this accolade really confirms the strides we have achieved at Yalumba by focussing on quality and personality in all our wines."
