Hot on the heels of winning the prestigious Amorim Environmental Award at the international Drinks Business Green Awards in London, we have now returned from the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) Convention with an array of accolades for our wines.

The WSWA Annual Convention and Expo, which was held at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas from 2-5 April 2012, is the largest gathering of America’s wine and spirits distributors attracting suppliers from around the world who aim to highlight, grow or enter their brands in the United States marketplace. This was the first year that Avondale ventured into the bright-lights oasis in the Nevada Desert for this premier wine gathering, and we were delighted that our range was awarded the following:

–          Anima Chenin Blanc – Double Gold and Best in Show Award
–          Samsara Syrah – Double Gold and Best in Show Award
–          Armilla Brut MCC – Double Gold
–          Cyclus white blend – Silver
–          La Luna red blend – Silver

We are honoured and delighted to have received so many accolades.  Johnathan comments: “It proves Avondale’s philosophy that by taking your time and seeking sustainable solutions in the wine-making process, one can achieve spectacular results. It is a great reward for us to be recognised internationally and we thank our fantastic team for all their hard work.”
