Award-Winning Alternatives

Wynnton Ridge Vineyard new tasting room

Artwine is renowned as a leader in innovation, introducing new-emerging varieties to Australia’s wine scene, and was duly recognised in 2018 with a total of six trophies across multiple wine shows. Artwine’s 2018 In the Groove Gruner Veltliner performed exceptionally well at the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show, at which it won a gold medal, as well as the Best White Wine, Dr. Rod Bonfglioli Best Wine of Show and the International Judge’s Wine to Watch categories.

Artwine is also the first winery in the Adelaide Hills to introduce albariño, a variety with Spanish origins. Artwine’s 2018 The Real Thing Albariño is a dry white that features a delicious palate of citrus, lime and stone fruits. It’s an excellent addition to the winery’s offerings and a perfect accompaniment to seafood.

Each year, more Mediterranean varieties are grown in Australian soil, offering unique flavours to Australian wine connoisseurs, and Artwine is forging the way.
