Our winemaker Ros Ritchie from Ros Ritchie Wines had huge success at the Federation Sq Wine Showcase of new releases in Melbourne recently. With seen wines on show she took five medals – two Gold and three Silver!!! The winning wines were 2012 Gewürztraminer and Riesling (Gold) with the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebiolo and Cuvee taking silver. The two Gold medals were the only two awarded in the show while the Gewurztraminer was also awarded Best in Show. Great result for the Upper Goulburn region. Grapes for all the winning wines were sourced from 5 local vineyards meaning the medal haul was representative of the Mansfield district and Upper Goulburn Wine Region as a whole. Well done Ros and we are proud.

Marysville Sparkling Wine Festival
The inaugural Marysville Sparkling Wine Festival was held over four days during November, 2010. Now it is an annual event planned to coincide with the Melbourne Cup.
The main activities on the Festival calendar are the Australian Sparkling Wine Show, where the best sparkling wines in a variety of classes are chosen, a Gala Dinner and the wine festival itself, held on Melbourne Cup Day.
The festival is a day of food, wine and entertainment held on Marysville Central Park, in the main street of Marysville and nestled in the surrounding hills. Sparkling wines, local food and produce can all be sampled. The hills come alive with the sound of live music, fashions on the field and cooking demonstrations.
On November 18 2012, the Hume and Hovell Cricket Oval at Strath Creek will become the centre of the cricketing world as the Victorian Blind Cricket Association takes on the Shepparton and area Rotary Club for the inaugural Vision Australia Radio Cup.
This challenging game of cricket, for both sides, will be a fundraiser for the radio station network and the Victorian Blind Cricket Association.
Supported by the Upper Goulburn Winegrowers Association, the local wineries, local restaurants and the town of Strath Creek, there will be local markets, food and wine tastings, entertainment for the kids, auctions, raffles, games of cricket for the kids and the grown-ups and buckets of fun. The money raised will go to Vision Australia Radio and the Victorian Blind Cricket Association.
TV and radio legend, John Blackman, will host the day and guests will mingle with the stars and cricket wanna-be’s!
The Hume and Hovell Oval is situated just out of the town of Strath Creek (population 432 on a good day) which is about 85K’s north of Melbourne and to the lower right of Shepparton. The oval itself is based on Lords in England… right down to the similar slope. Beautifully maintained by Don and Anne McQueen, this ground will become the centre of fun cricket on Sunday November 18.
Award winning wine maker, Ros Ritchie, has already accepted the role of honorary wine maker for the event and a special range of her whites and dry red have been set aside as special commemorative wines for sale.
The pitch is being prepared and the food and wine is being planned. The Hume and Hovell Cricket Ground on Sunday November 18 …bring your money with you!
