| || Louisa Rose - 2005 Finalist 'Winemaker of the Year' |
Each year, Qantas and Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine select eight finalist to be judged for the ultimate accolade of 'Winemaker of the Year'. In 2005, Yalumba is proud to announce Louisa Rose has been chosen as a finalist.
Louisa has already received a number of winemaking awards and this finalist selection only continues to acknowledge her outstanding contribution to the industry.
In 1999, Louisa was named Barossa Winemaker of the Year. She was also a finalist in the Qantas/Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine Winemaker of the Year in 2000, and 2004 saw the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) announce Australian winemaker, Louisa Rose from Yalumba, as winner of the prestigious 2004 Women in Wine Award.
At Yalumba we need no award to confirm the merits of Louisa Rose and her dedication to the art of winemaking... it only reaffirms what we already know. The winner will be published in the August/September issue of Gourmet Traveller Wine.
Congratulations on your finalist selection Lou!
