The Pullman/Queensland Wine Press Club award, worth $1,000 and a trophy, was presented to Channon at the Pullman Brisbane King George Square Hotel today by QWPC president Ian McLeod.
A former litigation lawyer, Channon established Robert Channon Wines in the late 90s, later winning numerous trophies and gold medals at Australian wine shows.

“It’s generally recognised that his verdelho helped put Queensland on the national wine map,” Mr McLeod said. “Wine expert James Halliday has said he is one of the best producers of this variety in the country.”

“He has established an enviable record for attention to detail in viticulture and winemaking,” Mr McLeod said.

Guests at the Pullman luncheon today sampled Channon’s 2014 Verdelho, bottled this month.

The Queensland Wine Press Club was established in 1978 by a former Courier-Mail wine writer and news editor, David Bray.
