RUTHER­GLEN’S Mor­ris Wines, a win­ery boast­ing a rich 156 year his­tory, con­tin­ues to make its pres­ence felt within both the Aus­tralian and in­ter­na­tional wine scenes.

The win­ery has won a num­ber of awards in re­cent years.

Ear­lier this year, the com­pany made quite a splash at the De­can­ter World Wine Awards, held in the UK.

The Mor­ris Wines Black La­bel mus­cat got both a gold medal and a tro­phy for be­ing the over­all win­ner in its class, while at the same awards, their Cel­lar One mus­cat and topaque, and Old Pre­mium Rare mus­cat and topaque, all re­ceived gold medals in their cat­e­gories.

One of the win­ery’s lat­est re­leases, the 2012 CHM caber­net sau­vi­gnon, re­ceived five stars in the Wines­tate De­cem­ber 2014 edi­tion, as well as a glow­ing re­view.

Wines­tate honours also flowed this year, with Mor­ris Wines be­ing named the Best Large Cel­lar Door in Ruther­glen at their 2015 awards.

Ebony Mor­ris, from Mor­ris Wines, said that the recog­ni­tion was ex­tremely hum­bling.

“We’re ex­tremely proud that our for­ti­fieds are hold­ing up on the world stage,” Ms Mor­ris said.

The cold weather is not stop­ping the events at Mor­ris Wines, with plenty or­gan­ised for the Win­ery Walk­a­bout on the Queen’s Birth­day week­end.

“We’re su­per ex­cited for Walk­a­bout and hope to see ev­ery­one there hav­ing a great time.”

The week­end’s ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude mu­sic from Tou­can Rock and the op­por­tu­nity to taste a range of the com­pany’s wines.

The ar­ray of food will in­clude desserts from Ge­of­frey Michael Patis­serie, paella matched to Mor­ris Wines mal­bec by Smart Hos­pi­tal­ity, Ital­ian street food from Pin­cho’s, and more.

The win­ery will also play host to a Christ­mas in July event for their wine club mem­bers, to be held in con­junc­tion with Wodonga’s Broad Gauge Restau­rant, with tempt­ing fare to be served at the restau­rant.
