Brand Profile Image

5 Star Winery - James Halliday's Wine Companion 2013

Willunga 100 is based in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia, about 40 minutes south of Adelaide. Founded in 2005, the company is a joint venture between quality UK based importer, Liberty Wines, owned and operated by David Gleave MW, and industry veteran John Ratcliffe. A 4.5 Star rated winery by James Halliday, he believes Willunga 100"has hit the scene running, with outstanding value for money."

The wines up until 2009 were made by one of Australia’s most dynamic and awarded winemakers Steve Pannell, assisted by Kate Day. Kate working previously at Mitchelton Wines, Mount Adam and Wellington Wines Tasmania. They are still made by Kate and we are lucky enough to have the experience and expertise of Tim James who has joined us. He is well known on the wine-judging circuit, and was the Managing Director of Wirra Wirra Wine Company for seven years until 2007, and before that was Production Director at Hardy's.

We source our fruit from an array of vineyards, some of which are up to 50 years old, reflecting the character of the area and the varieties from which they are made.

It has been a tradition to hang an Olive Branch above your door to announce the release of a great vintage wine. This blend is appropriately named after this great tradition.

Awarded the Top Gold Medal at Royal Melbourne Wine Show 2011!

Willunga 100 is very proud to announce that the 2010 Willunga 100 McLaren Vale Grenache has been awarded a Top Gold medal at the 2011 Melbourne Wine Show in the Best Rhone Styles - Shiraz and/or Grenache Based Blends category.

There were 6 Top Gold recipients, the other 5 all being Shiraz, so we were judged to be the best Grenache in the Show!

The wine was also one of the 12 finalists to be tasted off for the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy.

A wonderful result for a wine we are very proud of.
