The finalists of the 2018 New South Wales Wine List Awards have been announced ahead of a formal reception to be held later this month.
For the fifth consecutive year, R&CA has partnered with the NSW Wine Industry Association to deliver the NSW Wine List Awards, as part of the 2018 Wine List Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence program. The Wine List Awards have also been proudly supported by Destination NSW.
The Wine List Awards seeks to showcase restaurant businesses supporting the local wine industry through wine list development and actively promoting wines that complement their menus.
R&CA welcomes Mark Baulderstone, managing director of RIEDEL, as a special guest judge for the event.
“We have been delighted with the quality of this year’s entries to the NSW Wine List Awards and look forward to recognising the winners and their contribution to the industry,” R&CA CEO Juliana Payne said.
“The importance of including quality Australian-produced wines on restaurant menus was underscored by our 2018 Industry Benchmarking Report which found that almost 80 per cent of hospitality businesses rated this as important or very important.”
The winners of the Awards will be announced at a reception to be held at NSW Parliament House on Thursday 18 October.
