Wine work recog­nised

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Time Out Social Scene - Chloe Fraser

About 100 guests gath­ered at Cullen Wines last Satur­day night for the black-tie pre­sen­ta­tion din­ner of the Cullen Award for Ex­cel­lence.

The award, which recog­nises the out­stand­ing ef­fort made by an in­di­vid­ual, group or or­gan­i­sa­tion in pro­mot­ing or im­prov­ing wine or wine­mak­ing prac­tices in WA, was awarded to John Glad­stones.

Dr Glad­stones is in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised for his ex­per­tise on cli­mate and viti­cul­ture and is cred­ited as the first to have recog­nised the po­ten­tial of Mar­garet River as an ideal wine-grow­ing re­gion.

Spe­cial guest James Hal­l­i­day, who was the 2016 award re­cip­i­ent, made a speech and paid tribute to Dr Glad­stones, the re­gion and the Cul­lens.

Amanda White­land, Pip Heaford, Rob Broad­field and Rebecca Moore.
