Banksia Sustainability Awards 2015
We are thrilled to have been awarded the Banksia Gold Award at the 2015 Banksia Sustainability Awards held on Friday evening in Sydney. This followed on from our category win of the Small to Medium Business Sustainability Leadership Award. To win our Small to Medium Business category was amazing but then to be named the best of all 59 finalists was an even more incredible, humbling and somewhat surreal experience.

Australia’s Young Gun of Wine
Troy Kalleske
"Since the first release of his wines in 2004, he has rapidly gained a reputation for producing top-quality hand crafted wines. Troy’s wines have rated extremely highly amongst critics both in Australia and overseas. One critic has hailed Troy’s wines as "one of the greatest revelations of his Australian tastings" and other reviewers have consistently described Troy’s wines as "outstanding", "exemplary", and "the best in Australia". The Kalleske brand has also been described as "the most exciting new brand from the Barossa in 20 years". Troy is rapidly gaining recognition as one of the Barossa’s and Australia’s best young winemakers" - Max Allen.
