2023 Adelaide Hills Wine Show – A historical win

A historical seven trophy win at the 2023 Adelaide Hills Wine Show

We are thrilled to share exciting news from Sidewood Estate’s recent triumph at the 2023 Adelaide Hills Wine Show, where we secured a historical achievement of seven trophies across three wines, setting a new record for both the region and Sidewood. Owner Owen Inglis expressed his gratitude, noting, “This victory is not a stroke of luck but the result of nearly two decades of unwavering dedication since the inception of our Mappinga Road vineyard in 2004.”

Inglis attributed this historic achievement to the exceptional team at Sidewood, highlighting key contributors such as Darryl Catlin, Mark Vella and many other dedicated staff across various departments. He emphasised that Sidewood’s success is a collective achievement, and everyone involved is truly part of the Sidewood family, affectionately known as ‘Sidewoodians.’ This marks the second consecutive year Sidewood has received the trophy for ‘Best Producer >100 Tonnes,’ reinforcing our commitment to excellence. In 2022, we also won trophies for ‘Best Pinot Noir of Show’ in addition to ‘Best Producer >100 Tonnes.’

Inglis concluded with special thanks to his family for supporting his passion for wine. Sidewood Estate is proud to be the largest sustainably certified winery and vineyard operation in the Adelaide Hills. We appreciate your continued support and partnership and we look forward to sharing more remarkable moments with you in the future.
