Genevieve wins cellar door person of the year!

Our fantastic cellar door manager Genevieve has taken out the prize for best cellar door person in the McLaren Vale region...

...and very much deserved!

Gen works tirelessly each day to give our valued clients an exceptional Yangarra experience, and her efforts at providing a personal, engaging and knowledgable wine tasting have been rewarded. We are absolutely delighted that she has been recognised by the McLaren Vale region - but it was no news to us that she is excellent at what she does!

Gen received the prestigious award based on an anonymous judging process, and she wins a scholarship towards visiting any wine region in the world (lucky thing!)

Congratulations to all the other finalists and winners at the awards.

We only just visited the winery yesterday, but on checking this website I wasn’t surprised to read about Gen’s award.  I have visited wineries across Australia and can definitely say that Gen’s tasting was the best experience I’ve had by a long way.  Her knowledge of the wines, the winemaking process and the estate was excellent and her friendly, vibrant personality made our visit stand out.  Congratulations Gen and hope you enjoy your prize!
