Howard Park Vertical Evaluation Inaugural Competition - Winner Announced


George Gallagher and his wife will join our Senior Winemaker Janice McDonald and the Burch family for an exclusive 'behind the scenes event'; a tasting of every back-vintage of one of Howard Park's flagship wines.

They will participate in a vertical tasting of the entire history of the Howard Park Riesling, from the first vintage in 1986 up to the current vintage 2014 release.

George, his wife, Janice and the Burch family will reflect on these wines and evaluate them in order to compile a history of the wine and gain an understanding of the quality of the different vintages. 

George and his wife will also be provided with flights, accommodation and lunch at the winery on the tasting day.

The competition is run annually, and was open to all Wine Club members who completed an online or phone order for Howard Park wine to the minimum value of $500 between 26 March and 30 June 2014.

Congratulations to George and thank you to everyone who participated in the competition.
