Women in wine prove resilient in a difficult year


There was some disdain when the board of the Australian Women in Wine Awards (AWIWA) announced the first awards - some six years ago. 

Since then the event has grown in strength but remains the world’s only awards program for women in wine.

Founding AWIWA Advisory Board member and wine journalist Jeni Port said it was extremely satisfying to see that there has been a particularly strong collection of entries in a very difficult year. this year. 

“I think this is something that brings this year’s awards into their own," she said. "We asked entrants to tell us about their year, including the challenges, and they all rose to the occasion. 

“What’s more, their businesses often thrived. And they learnt so much more about themselves and their abilities. It’s been wonderful to read their stories.”

All categories have three finalists being announced today, except in the case of the Champion of

Diversity and Equality, in which the judges have selected just two.

The finalists in each award category are (in alphabetical order by surname):

Cellar Door Person of the Year – sponsored by Langton’s
