A local winery with a track record of award-winning alternative varieties has taken out multiple awards at the recent Riverland Wine Show.

Glossop-based '919 Wines' took out 3 trophies for its 2018 Reserve Touriga.

The popular drop picked up awards for best organic wine, best alternative wine and the trophy for Best Single Vineyard Riverland Wine.

Winemaker Eric Semmler said he was honoured to receive the recognition.

“The winery originally planted it to make traditional fortified wines styles but started making table wine from it nearly a decade ago and its natural balance gives it an effortless elegance as a wine,"Eric Semmler said.
