Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards Hall of Fame

Each year, new successful establishments are added to Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards Hall of Fame. To maintain a current listing however, they must enter and maintain their glass rating each year, which is no easy feat!

The Hall of Fame’s individual award is presented periodically to recognise an outstanding individual and their contribution to the Sommelier Profession and to training and education and the service of fine wine within the Australian Hospitality and Tourism Industries.
