Angove Recognised at the Australian Organic Awards 2021

30 November 2021

Fifth-generation family-owned wine company, Angove Family Winemakers, have been awarded Exporter of the Year at the Australian Organic Industry Awards that were announced in a virtual awards ceremony on Friday 12th November.

Angove Family Winemakers was established in 1886 and marks its 15th anniversary farming and making wine under organic certification this year.

Angove’s joint Managing Director, Richard Angove, said the family, which is deeply committed to sustainable vineyard management, was thrilled to win the Award.

“The extra time and effort the team have put into growing the grapes, crafting the wines, packaging and then distributing them to global markets has been truly worthwhile,” Richard said.

“Being recognized like this means the industry is acknowledging that what we are doing is beneficial to the organic sector, we know it is beneficial for our vineyards and the environment.”

Certified organic grape growing and winemaking means going over and above what others in the wine industry are doing, Richard explains.

“As well as crafting wine made from grapes grown without synthetic chemical intervention, being certified organic also means we adhere to strict organic protocol standards every step of the way and are independently audited each year,” he said.

“Most importantly holding organic certification means we are preserving and improving our precious resources for future generations.”

Richard Angove noted that while the Angove Organic wines were multi award winning and getting great support from our trading partners and consumers, a great deal for the credit for the award needed to go to the team at the vineyard, the winery and especially in our export team who, even with the current International Freight issues, were the very best in the business at getting our wines into markets around the world. Like all wins it is a great team effort and we are very proud and grateful of the teams ongoing efforts.

With a trusted history of over 135 years of the finest viticulture heritage in the world, The Angove Family is committed to producing vines with better balance, fruit concentration and overall vineyard biodiversity and health. Every grape, and every wine, is family grown, certified organic, hand-crafted and estate bottled, ready for the world.
