Our winemakers at their best with another contender for Glug best value red. Glug has the view that how a winery should be judged depends as much on the output of Kitchen or BBQ wines as it does on fine wines.
The two inspirations are the first Orlando Jacobs Creek 1973 released in 1976 and the reply from Penfolds, the Koonunga Hill in 1978. They were likely the best budget reds ever released in Australia and are part of our ‘Hall of Fame’.
Another inspiration has been Len Evans and Rothbury Estate as while the made the finest from the Hunter Valley, Evans insisted club members had access to good, low priced reds and whites. These he called QDR and QDW for quaffing dry red and white. Many of these were superb.
This is the Glug framework within which our range of sub ten dollar wines are made, all to date being from South Australia.
