Australian winery, The Hidden Sea, won gold at the 2021 People’s Choice Drinks Awards in the UK — taking the crown for the most coveted category: “Wine Passion: The Story Behind the Label.”
Co-founders Justin Moran, and AFL legend Richie Vanderberg, are proud as punch for winning the main award. “Thank you to everyone who voted and supported us. The Hidden Sea has a clear purpose: One Wine. One Mission. To remove plastic from the world’s oceans. We couldn’t achieve this without the amazing work of our Hidden Sea family, and the entire team at The ReSea Project,” says Vandenberg.
A category dedicated to showcasing, and celebrating, hard-working and passionate producers from around the world; wineries were invited to submit a video telling the stories behind their labels. The Hidden Sea was amongst several great Australian wineries including the likes of Taylors & McGuigan, and celebrities like Kylie Minogue, Graham Norton, and Sarah Jessica Parker, plus a host of fierce international competitors.
“With the recent momentum in sales, and our awesome partnerships, this is further recognition that what we’re trying to achieve is more than just another drinking moment; it’s a movement,” says co-founder Justin Moran.
