Home Barrel Competition

Liebichwein are putting the call out for the best home barrel blend. While this is an annual event, it seems more fitting than ever to continue the tradition in a year where many people are staying close to home due to COVID-19. All amateur wine blenders around Australia can submit their fortified wines for the chance to be crowned ‘best fortified blend’ in a competition organised by Barossa winery Liebichwein. The winner receives an engraved wooden dipstick trophy they can use to measure how much is in their barrel.

Fortified wines have a long history in the Barossa Valley and winemaker, Ron Liebich, certainly knows a thing or two about them. Ron has completed over 50 vintages growing and producing a range of wines with a special focus on fortifieds which have a widespread fan base across Australia.

Liebichwein cellar door offers varied fortified styles and blends made from red and white varietals including Muscat, Semillon, Frontignac and Grenache. Many customers come in to get regular refills of bulk fortifieds for aging and blending in their home barrel.

Having a home barrel to age your own fortified blend is one of life’s little luxuries. By running this competition, Liebichwein aim to reward the patience in taking on this challenge. Budding winemakers blenders are encouraged to enter one or more samples of their own blend for professional evaluation by Ron and an experienced judging panel.

Entry Information

Home Barrel Competition entries are open Australia-wide as long as a 200mL wine sample can be sent without spilling a precious drop. All entries must be received by 24th August 2020 for judging (entry fee $10 per wine). Entries can be dropped off at Liebichwein during cellar door hours or posted to the winery in a well-sealed bottle/jar with secure packaging. Prizes of rare fortified samples will be awarded for the Top 3 wines and announced by the end of September. All entrants receive feedback on their wines from the judging panel.
