With our first RESERVE Shiraz on release the 2012 has astounded us by becoming finalist in this prestigious competition.

Double GOLD Melbourne International Wine Awards 2015

On release our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has taken a DOUBLE GOLD medal!

This wine show is all about pairing food and wine which is all part of the judging process...a little food and a taste of wine. Truly fantastic for Glenwillow Wines.

Glenwillow has retained our 4½ star rating in this years Australian Wine Companion. Our 2010 Nebbiolo was rated at 95 points (“Wines on the cusp of gold medal status, virtually indistinguishable from those wines receiving 95 points”) , whilst our 2011 Shiraz scored 92 points (“Highly Recommended. Wines of silver medal standard, wines of great quality, style and character, and worthy of a place in any cellar”). Our Sparkling Shiraz Cabernet and Barbera also rated well.

  1. 2013 Glenwillow Wines Just Bottled

Our 2013 wines have recently been bottled and are looking very, very flash. These wines are rich and full-flavoured with our signature soft, velvety mouthfeel. These wines are currently in storage at Harcourt Coolstores where they are kept at constant 14 - 16° C. Here they will slowly mature and continue to soften and integrate their complexity. We expect to release the Italian varieties, Nebbiolo and Barbera, early next year, while the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon will be mid-2015.    

Bendigo's Leg of Food and Wine Festival's World's Longest Lunch.

The Bendigo leg of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival was a hall-mark event in which the Glenwillow Nebbiolo was served. Taking place in the picturesque setting of Rosalind Park Bendigo, the Nebbiolo was paired with a Malaysian Style Duck with Green Bean & Mint Salad dish. The pairing proving popular.

"It's pretty exciting for us to see a very long table full of wonderful people with very big grins enjoying our wines. So thank you to all of you who attended and we hope to see you at the next event." (...comments from Peter on the day.)

We also got a mention in the Bendigo Advertiser too...Click here to read the article.

New Release! - Sparkling Shiraz Cabernet
At long last, our long awaited Sparkling Shiraz Cab is now ready for purchase. In response to many of our loyal customers requests we have produced another fizzy red. This great wine is deep in colour with a persistent, fine bead. The bouquet shows hints of chocolate and dark cherry leading to luscious dark berry fruits on the palate. You have just got to try it! We have only produced a limited number of cases again so we expect it will sell out quickly.
"Glenwillow hoping for corker wine weekend"
Did you see it!? We made the press! We featured in the business section of the local Saturday Bendigo Advertiser for the Bendigo Heritage Uncorked Weekend. By the way it was another great event and we thank everyone who came to visit and support us.
