Accolades

Award Winning Wines

Thanks initially to Duke Ranson’s hard work and more recently to Ben Cane continuing to uphold the brand’s legacy, Duke’s Vineyard has garnered a significant array of industry accolades. The 2001 Riesling, our first vintage, won a gold medal at the Rutherglen Wine Show. The second vintage was awarded "Best Wine in the Show" at the prestigious Sydney Royal Show. Most notably, the 2017 Magpie Hill Reserve Riesling was "James Halliday's 2019 Wine of the Year," and the first white wine to be awarded 99 points.

Duke's Vineyard has been listed in Halliday's Top 100 Wineries for many years and has been a James Halliday Top Red 5 Star winery since 2013, placing our vineyard among "truly the best of the best."
