Life Membership of WCA is a prestigious and exclusive honour bestowed upon members who have served the organisation and / or the Australian wine industry in a dedicated and selfless manner for many years.
Only the WCA Board has the authority to appoint a Life Member, and must do so by resolution. Since 2014, winners of the annual Legend of the Vine Awards automatically receive Life Membership. James Halliday, internationally recognised wine expert is our patron and a life member.
Our other life members are detailed below by state.
