2023 Shortlist for Best Value Winery

We present to you today the 2023 Shortlist for Best Value Winery. This category is closely tied to the awarding of rosettes for wines offering special value for money at their price point. With more than 1300 rosettes awarded this year, the number of value wineries featured in the 2023 edition of the Companion is considerable indeed. 

Riposte Adelaide Hills

To know the man behind Riposte, Tim Knappstein, is to know that during his long winemaking history- he recently celebrated his 60th vintage – he has embraced and produced wines that everyday Australians can afford and enjoy. First at the Stanley Wine Company in Clare, then out on his own at Tim Knappstein Enterprise Wines, also in Clare. Tim Knappstein fashioned beautifully clean, smart, precisioned wines, that were well- priced to boot. He and his son, Nick, continue to apace at Riposte in the Adelaide Hills with little fanfare or fuss, sharing a similar philosophy. Be amazed at the quality of a host of Hills-sourced wines- from pinot gris, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay to pinot noir- priced at just $24 - JP
