The Australian Women in Wine Awards is the only awards platform for women in wine worldwide, and one of the world’s leading wine critics, British journalist and wine writer, Jancis Robinson OBE, MW is sponsoring ‘Best Owner Operator’ category at the 2017 Australian Women in Wine Awards.
Ms Robinson who is a regular contributor for the Financial Times and also for her website, described the awards “seriously worthwhile” and said that the Australian wine industry historically “may have been a bit backwards” in terms of gender equality.
She will present the Owner/Operator of the Year Award at the 2017 Australian Women in Wine Awards, which this year will be held at Australia House in London on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 in conjunction with Wine Australia.
