Wine Australia has partnered with the Australian Women in Wine Awards to host the 2019 Award Ceremony in New York this September.
The event forms a significant part of Aussie Wine Month and is timed for maximum exposure and awareness building at a key selling time. The awards will drive excitement and appreciation for our home-grown talent appearing in one of the world's leading wine cities.
Media investment and amplification across digital and social platforms will commence leading up to the event to increase awareness.
Wine Australia’s enhanced program for Aussie Wine Month is made possible by the Australian Government’s $50 million Export and Regional Wine Support Package.
In the coming weeks we will share more information about the awards ceremony in New York. However, in the meantime you can access information updated both on this page, and via the Australian Women in Wine Awards web page.

Are you trying to break into the US market?
In addition to the AWIWA, wineries seeking distribution in the USA are invited to exhibit at the New To Market Showcase: an importer meet and greet held on 18 September, as part of the larger Aussie Wine Month activation in New York City.
Due to specific state legislation affecting key markets, new to market winery participation in Aussie Wine Month is limited to this event.
As part of the New to Market Showcase, exhibitors will be invited to attend a one-day seminar in Adelaide, July 2019. Hosted by Damon Musha, Market Entry Program Manager, Americas, Wine Australia, this dynamic program will enable new to market exhibitors to achieve maximum exposure and success from their travels to the USA.
If you would like to participate in the New to Market Showcase, we require you to formally register using the link below. Program details, pricing information and additional FAQs are now available here.
The deadline for registration 30 April 2019.
