Wolf Blass has been named International Red Producer of the Year at the 2020 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London overnight.
It’s the fourth time Wolf Blass has received the prestigious award, after taking it out in 1992, 2002 and 2013.
The IWSC was established in 1969 and is recognised as one of the world’s most prestigious and influential wine competitions.
Wolf Blass Chief Winemaker Chris Hatcher said: “We are very proud with the continued recognition we have received at one of the most respected and prestigious wine competitions in the world.
“It is particularly exciting that our wines continue to be honoured and recognised for their quality and value.
“As a winery, we thrive on producing award winning wines and it is humbling that Wolf Blass continues to be so well received at an international level, helping pave the way for Australian wines.
“This is a very special reward and recognition of the dedication and hard work our winemaking and viticultural teams put into making exceptional quality wines and I am extremely proud of them.
“We treasure awards won at respected international wine competitions as they are a true, independent assessment of our wines from some of the most experienced and respected wine judges in the world.”
Australia also won Fortified Wine Producer of the Year, with Morris Wines taking out the accolade.
