We're Nominated for the 2023 Halliday Best Value Winery!

We are thrilled to be shortlisted for the 2023 Halliday Wine Companion Awards in the category of Best Value Winery!

This isn't our first time in the running for this award, having also made the Halliday Top 10 Best Value Wineries list in the 2021 Wine Companion.

In this year's shortlist announcement, Mr Halliday himself said of us:

"Bleasdale Vineyards breathes history with direct descendants of the Potts family still actively involved with the running of the business. The climate is almost identical to that of Coonawarra, and the heat spikes of (say) the Barossa seldom challenge the otherwise calm, cool growing season. Malbec is its ace in the hole, ever reliable, and superb cabernet sauvignons should be no surprise given Langhorne Creek’s climate. Then there’s Paul Hotker, 2018 Wine Companion Winemaker of the Year. Recognising that Bleasdale’s larder of malbec, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz needed some balance, he went to the Adelaide Hills and purchased riesling and pinot gris."

We are in great company in our category, and also pleased to see two of our neighbours here in Langhorne Creek nominated for other awards. This includes Greg Follett from Lake Breeze Wines for Winemaker of the Year, and Kimbolton Wines for Dark Horse Winery!

The winners will be announced at The Halliday Wine Companion Awards in early August. We can't wait to find out the winners!
