Many a winemaker was sweating on their smallgoods winning the inaugural Wine Industry Smallgoods Smackdown competition (#WISS), held last Friday in the Barossa.
Organised by winewriter Mike Bennie and winemaker Dave Brookes, it pitted Italians against Germans, salamis against country hams. Other judges included Nick Ryan and Richard Cornish and the stakes were high. Check out the #WISS Blog here
When it was announced that our very own Harry’s Hotstick Salami won the Best Salami bracket followed by Best of Show, the squeals of delight could be heard from all over the Yarra Valley.
This salami was made in June this year at our annual Salami Day held in the Yarra Valley.
Huge congratulations to Harry Clegg, our Salami Maestro, and also to Stick, Brick and Straw, who sacrificed themselves for our greater pleasure.
Next year the #WISS competition will be held in the Yarra Valley.
