2018 Wine Communicator of the Year Awards - Sydney, Australia

Join the finest wine business professionals and communicators at the new Gourmet Traveller headquarters to celebrate this year’s best wine communicators.

The awards recognise outstanding contribution to, and excellence in, wine communication in all its forms. In each of the nine categories, a short list of finalists is reviewed and selected by a panel of expert judges.

A winner is then chosen in consultation with WCA Board. The overall Wine Communicator of the Year is then chosen from the category winners. Finalists will be announced on Monday 15 October, and winners will be awarded at the presentation night in Sydney sponsored by Riedel Australia.

WCA aims to be the pre-eminent organisation connecting business professionals working with wine. The group engages and inspires members through the delivery of insightful information and resources in an environment of wine industry cohorts. This will better enable us to learn and connect with the industry, providing a leadership position in the sustainable development of a world class Australian Wine Industry.

Battonage Forum - Women in Wine

Cathy will be giving the closing comments at Bâtonnage - a day-long forum opening up a conversation about women in wine and we hope to see you! Rebecca will be in the audience madly taking notes :) 

"Bâtonnage is the brainchild of all those who identify as women working in all the different facets of the wine industry... even (especially) those who have traditionally been overlooked or spoken over. We strive to educate wine professionals as well as wine industry supporters on the unique challenges and opportunities that women in the field--winemakers, vineyard workers, writers and marketers, salespeople, sommeliers, collectors, and drinkers--have faced both historically and present-day. We simultaneously seek to propose pragmatic solutions for charting a positive, inclusive course forward."

Karen Miller - Yoga Teacher & Steakhouse 316 Bartender 

About Karen Miller:

For the past fourteen years Karen has taught in the Hamptons, Austin and now Aspen. Her style of teaching is rooted in the Iyengar tradition where slow, mindful movements are practiced along with gaining a deep understanding of how the breath moves throughout the body.

Because of her thoughtful sequencing and light playful approach to discovering the Self, her students have been committed to her classes for over a decade.  

Her daily mantra is, “With the start of everyday, an opportunity to ‘do the work’ presents itself. We have the choice to live a purposeful, authentic life by starting exactly where we are with circumstances exactly as they are.”  When else? How else?
