Villa Maria Viognier Tops Another Wine Competition

Villa Maria's Single Vineyard Omahu Gravels Viognier has just been awarded the Viognier trophy and gold at the Hawkes Bay Wine Awards 2010.

The wine is an exceptional performer and is just one of Villa Maria's and award winning range of Viognier wines.

Since 2005 Villa Maria Viogniers have won a total of 10 trophies and 17 Gold awards at a range of New Zealand and international shows.

The Villa Maria Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2008 was also a gold and trophy winner at the Hawkes Bay show and is another high performer having previously won trophy and gold at this year's Royal Easter Show.

Attending the awards dinner was Villa Maria Company Viticulturist Ollie Powrie who was pleased to see the calibre of wins and the impact of these on the Hawke's Bay region, "These awards emphasize the consistency we are obtaining from fruit sourced in the Hawkes Bay and gives us a great opportunity to benchmark our success in the region".

This year's competition attracted entries from 51 wineries in the Hawkes Bay Region and marks the 10th year the competition has been running.
