The Australian Organic Wine Awards 2020 have been designed to celebrate the finest drops from Australia’s best certified organic and biodynamic winemakers.
Australian Organic Limited CEO Niki Ford said the peak body is delighted to be hosting the Awards in what has been a tough year for winemakers; a fantastic way to raise the profile of high quality organic wine and boost the industry.
The Awards provide the opportunity for certified organic winemakers to showcase their varietals in a time where many wine events have been cancelled or postponed.
Judging will be held in January 2021 at Brisbane’s iconic City Winery. The winner will receive a Cullen Wines trophy, case of Cullen wines, Riedel decanter and special feature article in Gourmet Traveller WINE, as well as promotion through digital media. Second and third winner will receive a Riedel decanter.
To enter judging, wines must be fully certified organic and available for purchase commercially. Wineries can enter up to five certified wines, including any varietals and any vintage.
Australian Organic members can enter for free via the member portal.
