Tidswell Wines wins accolade in Korea!

27 May 2019


Our Heathfield Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 was awarded a 'Finest in Show' certificate recently at the Korea Sommelier Wine Awards and Fair 2019.

This vintage has been a consistent winner and we think it is well deserved...!

That’s a wrap for 2019 vintage!

08 Apr 2019

On a mild sunny autumn morning last week, the grape trucks rolled in to our Wrattonbully winery in readiness for 100 tonnes of ripe Shiraz, which was the result of a slightly later than average harvest and a successful slow ripening period over the warm summer days.

Time now for rest and reflection, before the winter months set in....

Our Cellar Door in Norwood is now closed!

04 Mar 2019
