I've already posted about Robert Channon Winery in Stanthorpe holding some must-attend events. To prove they are as fabulous as I raved about, they have taken home the Gold Award for their 2009 Verdelho in the 26th Annual The Courier Mail and Mercure Brisbane
Queensland Wine Awards. Their chardonnay and reserve chardonnay also placed so it is definitely worth the trip to Stanthorpe to visit the cellar door. Brisbane stockists include
* Cru Bar in Fortitude Valley and
* The Wine Experience in Rosalie
Other gold winners include Clovely Estate, Golden Glen, Harrington Glen, Heritage Estate, Hidden Creek, Hill of Promise, Ocean View Estates and Tobin Wines. I have not had the pleasure of tasting any of these wines but hope to soon.
CONGRATULATIONS- I hope these awards continue to recognise and fuel QLD's wine indsutry.
