LILLYPILLY Estate Winery's "wow factor" as officially been recognised in an exclusive publication.
The Leeton winery had two of its wines - the 2016 Noble Harvest and the 2017 Noble Blend - in the Wow Factor WhitesHalliday Wine Companion publication.
The Noble Harnest was given a rating of 95 out of 100, while the Noble Blend received 96 out of 100.
Winery owner Robert Fiumara was thrilled with the ratings and said having the wines recognised in publications such as this really helped continue to put Lillypilly on the map.
"We submit the wines each year, they rate the wines and then you find out how they are rated in the publication," he said.
"Usually anything over 90 is really good, so we're really pleased.
"We've been in the James Halliday book before, but not for the Wow Factor Whites.
"It's confirming to us that we're making good wines. It's quite rewarding to keep on getting these awards for our Noble Blends, in particular.
"Our Noble Blends are something we're renowned for.
"It's because of these awards and recognition that people come and find us, looking for our wines.
"James Halliday - his rating - is one of the most prestigious ones you can get."
The love of winemaking continues to remain strong for Mr Fiumara, who said while the work could be tough, it was accolades like this that gave him and his staff plenty of satisfaction.
The hard work never stops for Lilypilly, with the winery always looking ahead to see what else it can be doing.
New brands and varieties are being released, including a new pink velvet sparkling variety, which is the winery's first in that category.
A new Fiumara 7 is also in the process of being blended.
The first one that was made honoured the first Fiumara son - Domenic.
"That's nearly all gone now ... so we've been blending up the new one, which will be called Angelo, who is the second eldest brother," Mr Fiumara said.
"It's gotten quite popular as well. I think people like the family story behind it."
