Shining endorsement

A stellar year for Penfolds has been topped off by being named Winery of the Year at the inaugural James Halliday Australian Wine Companion Awards, held in Melbourne last week.

Penfolds was hailed as one of the greatest wine companies in the world by the respected wine guru.

The winery also received top honours in the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon varietal awards.

Their 2008 Grange received best Shiraz, and best Cabernet Sauvignon went to the 2010 Penfolds Bin 169 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.

Penfolds chief wine-maker, Mr Peter Gago touted the honour as a global endorsement of Barossa wines.
