History was made at Clare's Kilikanoon Morrison Vineyard on Friday during the SA Pruning Championships.

The first event since before Covid, saw a female competitor taking home the win in the singles category, for the first time in the competition's almost century-long history.

Laura McEwan has been pruning grapevines for eight years, starting in New Zealand before moving to the Barossa.

The competition which draws contenders from right across the state, began back between the first and Second World War, with competitors from the Barossa, Clare and McLaren Vale.
