2014 South Australian Regional Awards

Tony & Carol Kalleske had a great time celebrating the annual South Australian Regional Awards last week at the Barossa & Gawler Jockey Club. The awards celebrate and showcase the achievements of individuals, groups, businesses and organisations of regional South Australia. This year we were lucky enough to take home two of the iconic hand-blown glass pear trophies. 

We are very happy to have been selected as the Regional Wine Award Winner, coming up against some tough competition in Two Hands Wines and Murray Street Vineyards. The award recognises wine companies leading the way in using their environmental credentials and sustainability practices to enhance the credence values of their products.

We were also honoured to have been inducted into the Regional Awards Hall of Fame, having received the Sustainability Award in 2012 & 2013, and now the Regional Wine award. We were in good company up next to Barossa Tourism Services, who were also inducted after receiving three Small Business Awards.

Did you know: The pear was originally chosen as the symbol to represent the Awards as it is one of the only fresh foods that can be grown in all seven regions that the Awards cover.
