By Thursday 24 November 2022August 26th, 2023No Comments

The Oliver’s Taranga cellar door team in McLaren Vale has won the Wine Communicator of the Year award.

“Judges’ comments regarding the application were full of praise for not only the passion and enthusiasm of the team in telling the brand’s story, but also for the professionalism of the multi-channel approach the team had to ensuring that story transcended the physical experience,” says Andrew Stark, executive officer of Wine Communicators of Australia.

“I’m thrilled that that we’re recognising that wine communication takes place in a diversity of environments and across a wide range of media.

“The cellar door experience, and in hospitality more broadly, plays such an important role in building brand advocacy and is where so many stories are told, so it’s fantastic that our overall winner comes from that sector and sets the standard for what compelling story telling looks like.

“Last night’s Awards ceremony was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate excellence in communication and acknowledge the innovation that individuals and businesses have shown as we continue to navigate through what ‘post-Covid normal’ looks like in the lifestyle industry.”

The overall Wine Communicator of the Year is chosen by the WCA Board from the category of winners.
