Young Gun of Wine award winners holding up trophies

A big congrats to all of the Young Guns trophy winners and finalists. Read about the trophy winners by the Young Gun of Wine panel and by wine journalist Max Allen in the Financial Review.

On being awarded the trophy on the night of the Young Gun of Wine Awards presentation in early June, Rowly reflected:

My Scion journey represents 17 years of hard work, yet also represents Rutherglen and the amazing community of North East Victoria. It’s a real privilege to take this bloody heavy trophy home to our region. The creative outcomes of our work in the vineyard and winery will continue to evolve, and this award has stoked my passion even more! I remember attending the very first Young Gun of Wine Awards as a guest back in 2007 – at the start of my journey into wine – and being energised by the winemakers I met that night. What a trip to have come full circle as a Young Gun of Wine!
