2018 Coonawarra Cup launch

THE coveted Coonawarra Vignerons Cup was unveiled at Balnaves of Coonawarra last Friday night.

Around 30 invited guests attended the launch of the 2018 event, a highlight on the country race meeting calendar which attracts around 3000 visitors to the Penola Racecourse each year.

Wine and champagne flowed as guests soaked up some late afternoon sunshine and toasted to volunteers and sponsors.

The cup will visit every cellar door in Coonawarra before race day on January 18.
