Why the name Jar from Dirt Gravel Ride? Today the use of amphora brings something new and exciting to Stettyn Family Vineyard in the form of the Jar from Dirt ultra-premium range. An amphora is a clay vessel that has been used to make wine since ancient times.
The Male and Female winner of the 120km will win the prestigious title and the floating amphora trophy being designed and crafted by Corinne de Haas Ceramics. Winners will take home a smaller replica and the floating trophy will be displayed at Stettyn Family Vineyard. All finishers will take home a unique medal.
