ABOUT

Awards

Handpicked Wines’ philosophy is to produce high-quality wines from Australia and the rest of the world while fostering positive changes in the vineyard. We have won 8 major trophies since the beginning of the 2019 award season; we are thrilled to receive votes of confidence from our peers in the industry.

“We are seeing the rewards in so many ways – the increased energy in the vineyard is palpable, our wines are better than ever and our staff enjoy a healthy work environment and stimulating and satisfying work” - Peter Dillon, Chief Winemaker
