Vitale Barberis Canonico has presented its Annual Wool Excellence Award for 2023. After nearly 200 years of dedication to the highest standards of Saxon wool production, the Taylor family of Winton in Tasmania have been honoured as the winners.
The Award was held on Saturday November 11th 2023 at Roundhouse restaurant, positioned on the rooftop at the Crystalbrook Kingsley hotel.
