Merlot, Medals, Moving Feasts and More...

Media release:
Shaw Vineyard Estate has much to celebrate this spring, kicking off with a Trophy win at the NSW Small Winemakers Wine Show for their 2009 Premium Merlot.

"This wine is shaping up to be the best Merlot we have ever made, having so far won two Gold medals, two Bronze and now this Trophy" says Graeme Shaw, owner of Shaw Vineyard Estate.

Although the wine is yet to be released, the wine will be previewed during the Murrumbateman Moving Feast on the October Long Weekend.

The Murrumbateman Moving Feast now in its 11th year, is just weeks away and is undoubtedly the best festival of the year in the district.  Held each year on the October long weekend, this year being the weekend of the 1st & 2nd October 2011, thirteen local wineries each offer a main meal and/or dessert, perfectly matched with one of their wines, and countless pilgrims make their way around the popular wine district tasting their wares and experiencing the vast range of entertainment on offer.

At Shaw Vineyard Estate the Moving Feast also signifies the kick-off to the HeadOn Photo Exhibition, which Shaw proudly sponsors each year in Sydney. This year's exhibition at Shaw Vineyard Estate includes the winners of the 2011 Portrait Prize and is well worth the visit to experience photography of this quality in the region from 10am-5pm daily from 1–31 October.

Then in November when the wineries and cellar doors in the Canberra region come alive with entertainment, food and of course wine during the Wine, Roses and all that Jazz Festival, Shaw are proud to announce that they have secured The Acca Daiquiris as their entertainment to top off the weekend. Well, nearly. They will also play host to Bromley Fine Arts & Collectables Exhibition on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 November from 10am to 5pm in the Shearing Shed.
