Our wine continues on its journey of recognition world-wide – the maxim that Before a wine can be great, it must first be true’ seems, at last, to be embraced and understood by many wine reviewers and well as the general wine buying public.

We now export to about a dozen countries, our wine being available in fine restaurants all over the world – this gives us great pride. Export to France has been a long time coming so it gives me enormous pleasure to know that our wines are now available at Lavinia in the Boulevard de la Madeleine in Paris – surely the world’s best wine shop – truly Daniel in the Lion’s den!

Genesis has been added to Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine – Langton’s Classification is the accepted indicator of Australian Classed growths and is regarded as the definitive indicator of the top Australian wines.

On the European front, the English Financial Times, arguably the world’s most prestigious newspaper, did a story on Australian wine and nominated what they considered to be the twelve best Australian winemakers – Julian Castagna was on that list;  an honour, indeed.
