From the minute we won our first award at the 2018 Barossa Wine Show, we knew we were onto something special. We began with the plan of easing into business in our own time, between juggling other ventures and jobs as well as the chaos of a young family… Well that didn’t happen!
After walking away from our first competition with multiple awards for our wines, we jumped in headfirst – into what would inevitably be a chaotic and exciting first year of business.
Our win at the Barossa Wine Show took us completely by surprise. We didn’t have a website or even labels ready for our wines, so life got busy after this point!
This first year has brought plenty of highs and lows, chaos and so much excitement.
From our Halliday win, where we were named in ‘Ten of the Best Wineries’, recognised as a Five Star Winery and we had five of our wines featured in the Halliday 2020 Wine Companion, to an incredible appraisal from The Real Review, with two golds and three silvers for our wines.
After the first few months of success, we launched the Quinner Circle, and after an overwhelming number of members signing up, we turned it into an exclusive club. We’ve built a wine-loving and loyal audience, and been overwhelmed by the level of support we’ve received since establishing Quin Wines.
One year on and we are more motivated than ever. We’ve learned a lot; about business, our individual style of wine, and ourselves. We’ve loved the challenge and look forward to another of year creating more of your favourite Quin Wines.
