Celebrating Australia’s Wine List of the Year 2019
The winners of the 26th Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards were announced at the Vintec Electrolux showroom on July 22.
Congratulations to est on taking out the top award, Australia’s Wine List of the Year for 2019.
The judging panel, a 34-strong group of highly respected local and international judges, includes Master Sommeliers, Masters of Wine, wine judges, educators, commentators and previous award winners.
“It is the nature, calibre and global recognition and respect of these independent judges that sets these Awards apart,” said award founder Rob Hirst.
Launched in 1993 by Rob and Judy Hirst and Tucker Seabrook, Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards were created to recognise and reward the hard work and talent of sommeliers as well as the enormous investment in time and resources by business owners to develop quality wine lists and cellars.
Hirst reported a record year for entries again.
“The Drinks Association is thrilled to support Australia’s Wine List of Year,” added CEO Georgia Lennon. “As the Trade Communications Partner of the event, we look forward to featuring the winners in our magazine, Drinks Trade. Drinks Trade is the go-to publication for Australia’s on and off-trade and keeping them informed is key to its success.
“These awards are a valuable acknowledgement of the amazing talent in our industry and I congratulate all the winners.”
