Wine Show wraps up for another year

By Rebekah Wilson,
The Labelmakers Perth Hills Wine Show is over for another year.
There were 74 entries from 13 exhibitors which was a fantastic achievement given that the event itself was in doubt up until recently due to the effects of the COVID19 pandemic.
Chief Judge, Mark Warren from Happs and Marq Wines along with Josephine Perry from Dormilona Wines, Troy Overstone from Sandalford and Associate Judge Jordan Kuchel spent many hours deliberating over the entries and we had some fantastic results. A big thank you also to our “unofficial” chief steward, Freya Hohnen who kept the judges on track, deciphered their handwriting and brought a ray of sunshine to the day.
8 Gold medals
14 Silver medals
28 Bronze medals
Thanks goes out to all of our sponsors and supporters, along with some other mentions…
Helen at The Vault in Kalamunda was so accommodating and helped keep everything running smoothly. They put on a great spread of food for the evening’s event.
New Leaf Gallery supplied the beautiful hand crafted trophies – thank you Adam!
The Soapbox Company made the boxes which were presented to our sponsors to thank them for their support (containing their winner’s wine of course!)
Mason & Bird supplied the caffeine to keep us going whilst the delicious cakes came from Esther Cafe
Thanks also to the helpers who came along to set up, pack down, clean up and steward on the day…. Lyn, Audrey, Phoebe, Dennis, Rosie and Marion

Labelmakers Group – Wine Show 2020

By Rebekah Wilson,

In a week’s time, the Labelmakers Perth Hills Wine Show will take place.  Due to COVID-19, some changes were made to this year’s event which in essence has closed it off to the public for this year.  We hope that life will be back to some normality sooner rather than later and that we can move ahead with a wonderful celebration in 2021 with supporters of the Perth Hills Wine Region and the wineries that it comprises.

One thing we are so grateful for, is the ongoing support our sponsors have shown us.  Without them, this event would not take place at all.  We encourage everyone to show them some support in return and look to using their services should you ever need to.

Labelmakers Group secured the Naming Rights to the Perth Hills Wine Show in 2019 and have continued this into 2020/21.
Labelmakers Group is an Australian Owned and Operated Company and is the largest company of its type in Australia with over 400 employees.
Their labels are manufactured “ON SITE” at their Perth Factory located in Wangara where they also have their own on site Studio and Pre Press Facilities. With a focus on the servicing and supporting Western Australian Wine Producers with High Quality Wine Labels, Labelmakers is proud to once again be involved with the Perth Hills Wine Show.
