Australian wine producer, the Calabria Family Winery, has taken home 15 medals from the AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge 2015.

The winery - which has vineyards in Riverina, New South Wales, and the Barossa Valley - won seven golds and eight silvers.

The AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge is the largest wine competition in the world.

This year saw over 11,500 wines being entered from 1,708 wine producers in 40 countries.

The winery's gold medal winners were the Iconic Barossa Valley Shiraz 2012; the 3 Bridges Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 Bridges Durif, 3 Bridges Shiraz, Cool Climate Tempranillo and Nine Stones Barossa Valley Shiraz - all from 2013; and the Richland Shiraz 2014.

Andrew Calabria, sales and marketing manager, said: "To win several gold medals at an international level is positive in growing our business and it continues to give our team confidence that we are producing stand-out wines."

The Calabria Family Winery was founded in 1945 by Italian migrants Francesco and Elisabetta Calabria.

It has been in the family for three generations.
