2018 Wine Show Medals For 3drops

3drops wins gold at six nations wine challenge 2018
It's been an exciting month for the 3drops Great Southern wines at the various wine shows around Australia and abroad. We are very happy and proud of how our wines have performed.

By entering our wines in wine shows, it allows us to get our wines under the noses, and into the palates of extremely qualified wine judges. These judges try 1000s (f not more) wines and can help guide us on the quality of our wines in the marketplace. 

However, at the end of the day, no matter how many medals we win, it's you, our loyal supporters who drink our wines that we care about the most. We want to make wine that you'll enjoy with your friends and family.
