You can’t get anything better – orchids and wine, wine and orchids. And, that is what three Southern Suburbs Orchid Society members are going to receive for winning their section (Novice, Intermediate and Open) in the 2021 monthly Virtual Voting competition which ran from January – December 2021.
Operating on a points system basis; each month, members were allowed to submit up to 5 flowering orchids, for members to judge, which they thought looked the best. Each plant submitted earned one point. An extra point is awarded for a winning orchid.
- The winners of each category will receive one bottle of very special wine from The Gurdies Winery ‘The Orchid Label‘ wines. The labels for this range feature an image of an Australian native orchid on each label- from the Cobra Greenhood (Pterostylis grandiflora) to the Flying Duck (Caleana major) Orchid.
The winners will be announced soon.
- Why does The Gurdies Winery have ‘The Orchid Label‘ range of wines? I hear you say. Well, it’s because the winery is situated near to the Gurdies Nature Conservation Reserve which contains naturally growing native Australian orchids.
Get into nature, get into wine. Hop in the car and go for a drive
to the Gurdies
Makes for a great day out!
