Ash Ridge wins Winery of the Year 2014

2104_medalsAsh Ridge has won the Hawkes Bay Bayleys A&P Winery of the Year 2014. The second time the winery has won this award in three years is a spectacular achievement given the quality of wineries in the show. To add to our joy the winery also won Champion Merlot for the Ash Ridge Merlot 2013. This is also a major achievement for young winemaker Lauren Swift, who only graduated from EIT in November 2012, so to win a trophy from her first full-time vintage as a winemaker is an amazing result.
