Yealands Awards

Awards & Accolades

Since our launch on 08.08.08, we have a collected 28 trophies and 1700+ awards. Recognition continues to flow for our winemaking and sustainable practices for a truly talented team bound by a shared passion for beautifully crafted wine sustainably produced.


Wine Quality Accolades

Our winemaking philosophy at Yealands is to let the wines express their sense of place. This means minimal intervention and adjustments to the natural balance of the fruit that we receive each harvest. Luckily, out at our Seaview Vineyard we are blessed with fruit that has been expertly managed in the vineyard and comes from an exceptional site. Due to this, the fruit invariably comes into the winery full of flavour and with great potential for structure and balance.
