A big congratulations to Ann Killeen, whose winning photograph is featured on our front cover this month. Ann, an amateur photographer, took the stunning shot at Victoria’s Rutherglen Estate vineyard in the early hours of the morning.

“It was worth getting up before dawn to get the photo,” she said. “There is a big irrigation dam at the back of the vineyard that gets some amazing fog. I was standing at the top, looking down on the dam.”

Thank you to all who entered our ADAMA/ Grapegrower & Winemaker photo competition. We asked for shots of your healthy vines and were overwhelmed by the response. With over 160 entries of gorgeous vines from all over Australia and New Zealand, we loved looking through all of the photos.

We posted the top shots on Facebook to give fans a chance to pick their favourite. Check out the stunning pictures here:
