Join the AWIWA Celebration events in Melbourne – there’s two events to choose from!
Since the inception of the awards in 2015, Sarah Andrew and Jenny Polack have ensured Melbournians can revel in all the fun of the AWIWA and cheer on the winners by hosting viewing parties at prime locations, over a fabulous meal. They’ve also used this event to raise money for the allocation of scholarships for women in wine (which has been groundbreaking!!)
This year, continuing that tradition and accommodating for the new daytime awards ceremony, Jenny Polack is organising TWO events for all Melbourne wine lovers to come and celebrate women in wine! (Sarah Andrew will be present in Sydney for the awards ceremony.)
Both events are taking place on Friday 16 November 2018.
LUNCH – Watch LIVE the announcement of the 2018 Women in Wine Award winners, streamed directly from the award presentation in Sydney.
EVENING – A wine party to announce our WSET scholarship award winners and watching a replay of the 2018 Women in Wine Award winners.
