2017 Geographe Wine Show Results


Big congratulations to all the winners in the 2017 Geographe Wine Show announced at the Gala this month. With some fantastic local wines featured this year, we're really proud to be a major supporter of the show.

As usual, the Gala was a fantastic night out celebrating the success of the show and the Exhibitors. Through the evening, many awards were dished out including Best Alternative Varietal taken out by Hay Shed Hill, Most Successful Exhibitor which was awarded to Willow Bridge Estate along with loads other categories to be won.

Willow Bridge was on fire at the Gala, taking home a number of additional awards such as Best Shiraz with their 2015 Gravel Pit vintage, Best White Blend and Best Sparkling. 

We really do rate Willow Bridge here at LB HQ, it's an absolute cracker of a label. Check out our recent piece highlighting their mad skills - 'Willow Bridge Phwoar Wine'.
