The Young Gun of Wine Awards for 2017 are well underway, nominations are in and the first round of events happily celebrated.
A strong field of 195 winemakers are in the running and a maximum of two wines from each have been paraded before peers, sommeliers, communicators and consumers at events in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Just getting interested people together in fun settings sampling a diverse range of wine varieties and styles provides an air of excitement and conversation.
Next stage is to narrow this field down to the Top 50 to be announced in early 2017.
As a sponsor we have had the opportunity to nominate these talented winemakers and wish them all the very best in the competition:
- Mark Warren – Marq Wines www.marqwines.com.au
- Liz Silkman – Silkman Wines / First Creek Wines www.silkmanwines.com.au
