Awards

the true test of quality

We are thrilled to have won Silver awards this year for our 2014 vintage in both the DWWA and the International Wine Challenge.

We are delighted to announce that the Aurora 2014 has won Silver award in the Decanter World Wine Awards this year.

Established in 1969, The International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) was the first competition of its kind, set up to seek out, reward and promote the world’s best wines, spirits and liqueurs. Now in its 46th year, The IWSC’s relentless pursuit of excellence underpins every aspect of the competition today.

What sets the IWSC apart is the formidable reputation of its judging process. Currently receiving entries from around 90 countries, the IWSC is truly international in its reach and recognition.

Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is the world’s largest and most prestigious wine competition judged by top wine experts from around the world. The DWWA is respected internationally as an unrivalled source of wine recommendations.

The International Wine Challenge (IWC) owned by William Reed Business Media is now in its 34th year. The IWC is accepted as the world’s finest and most meticulously judged wine competition which assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges and awards include medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Commended and Great Value awards.

Experience Upperton for Yourself

What better way to experience the Upperton story than by joining us for a tour of the estate.
Vineyard founder, Andy Rogers, will guide you through the setup, management and ethos of the vineyard.
There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions about grape growing and winemaking,
while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

Terrace Bar Closed

Upperton puts the safety of its customers and staff at the forefront of its ethos and we have therefore decided not to open the Terrace bar or run tours this year. We anticipate running tours and having the Terrace bar open in 2021.

In the meantime the shop remains open on Tuesdays to Thursdays 12pm – 5pm, and Fridays and Saturdays 10am -5pm and we would love to see you.
