Wine Communicators of Australia (WCA) has today announced the finalists in the 10 categories of the 2019 Wine Communicator Awards, including a new award category: Best Wine Student.

Sixteen experienced and respected wine industry professionals have judged the entries in the award categories, with three panels each assessing two or three categories each. The New Wine Writer of the Year Award is judged independently by Gourmet Traveller WINE judging panel.

The overall Wine Communicator of the Year Award will then be chosen from the category winners by the WCA Board and announced at the awards night at Two Hands Cellar Door in Sydney on Wednesday 13th November 2019.

WCA Chairman Toni Carlino says, “The WCA Awards continue to grow from strength to strength, each year we continue to gain more and more entries over each category. Yet again the caliber of the 2019 nominations were of an incredibly high standard, making the judges job a difficult process. It is encouraging to see that the Australia wine community has such a high standard of talent.
