The Young Gun of Wine Awards began in 2007 as a way of showcasing the work of young wine labels and winemakers on the rise. IT has continued as a celebration of the exciting culture of evolution within the wine industry, how innovation and tradition go hand-in-hand to create something new and ultimately delicious to share.

Lot S01 in the Barossa Wine Auction is a collection of wines that is a testament to the new generation of Barossa winemakers. Some you will recognise as a well-known name today, others may be a discovery, but all have made their mark positively on Barossa’s winemaking landscape.
