Last night saw Wine Communicators of Australia (WCA) announce the winners of the 2021 Wine Communicator Awards eleven categories, including the overall Wine Communicator of the Year.

The annual Wine Communicator Awards recognises outstanding contribution to, and excellence in, wine communication in all its forms. Now in its twelfth year, support for the Wine Communicator Awards continues to grow and in 2021 we received a great response to the three new categories: Best New Blog or Podcast, Best Wine-Themed Event and Best Wine Communicator – Cellar Door.
