YALUMBA'S VIOGNIER QUEEN GETS HER CROWN
Each year the IWSC commends the achievements of those members of the international wine and spirit community who make an outstanding contribution to the industry. The Women In Wine Award is a new accolade (the inaugural recipient was Jane Hunter of Hunter Wines, New Zealand in 2003) designed to recognise a woman who has demonstrated exceptional dedication, drive and skill.
Of the award, IWSC representative, Maryan Hook said, "All those short listed for the Women in Wine Award were worthy candidates, and with the extremely high standard of nominations to only select one person for this award was truly a difficult decision. However, Louisa demonstrated a quiet confidence, which only comes with depth of knowledge. She continues to pass on her knowledge to others, humbly paying tribute to those who taught her. She is a true professional and it was these qualities that made her stand out amongst the judging panel and to be awarded this trophy."
