Wine Australia Wine Communicator Award

This year, the Wine Communicator of the Year was awarded to Gourmet Traveller WINE Magazine, the first time the award has gone to a business not an individual. The Wine Communicator of the Year is selected by the Board of Wine Communicators of Australia from the category winners, who this year are:

Digital Wine Communicator of the Year – Jane Thomson
Best New Wine Writer Award – Josh Martin
Best Published Feature Articles or Wine Column – Ben Canaider
Best Wine Educator Award – Jenny Polack
Best Wine Publication of the Year (trade, technical or consumer) – Gourmet Traveller WINE
Best Wine Book (trade, technical and consumer) – Tipsy
Best Wine Website or Wine App – Gourmet Traveller WINE
WCA Chair Angus Barnes said “last night was a fantastic culmination of a highly successful Awards and we wish to say a special thank you to our Awards Night partner Riedel.”

“This has become our most important event on the annual WCA calendar – certainly in terms of who we are, what we stand for and our aspirations for the future,”

“I particularly want to congratulate our new Wine Communicator of the Year, Gourmet Traveller WINE who in December 2017, will be celebrating its 20th year as Australia’s leading drinks magazine. Gourmet Traveller WINE was awarded two category winners, Best Wine Publication or the Year and Best Wine Website or Wine App and is the fitting winner for our prestigious Wine Communicator of the Year Award.”

The awards have operated as a standalone event for several years attracting an incredible mix of talent from right across the communications mix.

In 2016 WCA is delighted that Jane Thomson is recognised as the Digital Communicator of the Year for the second time (having also won the category in 2013) and that the awards recognise such a great blend of new and established talent.

Gourmet Traveller WINE has hotly contested a number of categories in the last few years and won the category for Best Wine Website or Wine App in 2015 and has won the category again this year thanks to launch of the digital edition on iPhone and Android this year.
