The annual WCA Wine Communicator Awards recognise outstanding contribution to, and excellence in, wine communication in all its forms.

The overall Wine Communicator of the Year is then chosen from the category winners. Previous winners have included Gourmet Traveller Wine, Tyson Stelzer, Jeni Port, Huon Hooke, Jane Ferrari, James Halliday, Campbell Mattinson and last years winner Gill Gordon-Smith.
