Saltram Australian Wine Communicator Award
The inaugural award was made at a presentation dinner in Sydney, Australia on April 6th. And so we await the results with interest. Rumors have the winner as Campbell Mattinson of Winefront Monthly.
Developed by the Wine Press Club of NSW and sponsored by Saltram Wine Estate “The Saltram Australian Wine Communicator Award seeks to encourage excellence and innovation in Australian wine communication, recognizing high quality writing, the presentation of new ideas and well-argued positions assisting the development of the industry.”
The winner receives the Saltram Australian Wine Communicator Award Trophy, a $10,000 travel grant donated by Saltram Wine Estate to either California or Italy and $1000 spending money from the Wine Press Club of NSW. The trip will include a visit and tasting at either Beringer or Castello de Gabbiano winery.
