The Coonawarra Vignerons Cup has welcomed their first ever presenting partner in their 37-year history – our brand 36º South! The news was announced at the Cup’s official launch, which took place at the Royal Oak Hotel in Penola on Friday the 9th of November.
We are so excited to be part of this fantastic event, which has come a long way from very humble beginnings. Although the Cup began as a small and informal affair, these days it is an exclusive and glamorous occasion that attracts hundreds of visitors to the Penola Racecourse each year. Guests participate in fundraising auctions and fashion shows and enjoy gourmet food and wine.
The world-class wine is provided by sponsors including Yalumba Family Vignerons, Raidis Estate, Balnaves of Coonawarra, Banks Thargo, Parker Coonawarra Estate, Redman Wines, and Majella Wines. Our 36º South Beef was the natural choice for pairing, given that it is produced at our Naracoorte site, located on the doorstep of the Coonawarra.
