London Calling - Imogen, Finalist in the 2017 Australian Women in Wines Awards

London Calling - Imogen, Finalist in the 2017 Australian Women in Wines Awards

Over 50 women from the Australian wine industry have descended upon London for what is one of the largest gatherings of Australian women in wine in the UK. Tonight at 7pm AEST the Australian Women in Wine Awards will be streamed live on Facebook from Australia House in London. 

Handpicked’s Imogen Hayes is at the award ceremony and has been nominated with two other finalists in the ‘Marketer of the Year’ category. Imogen will join other finalists Ebony Tinkler from Usher Tinkler Wines and marketing consultant Trish Barry.

Industry legend Jancis Robinson will be presenting one of the categories of the awards. The ceremony will be followed by a full day tasting at Australia House for UK trade and media. 

Imogen has been recongised for her contribution to Handpicked’s contemporary rebrand, as well as work on launching Handpicked’s first urban cellar door in Sydney CBD. 

Outside marketing, Handpicked has also been recognised this month on the viticultural side winning ‘Best Vineyard’ at the Yarra Valley Wine Show. Imogen says “Good wine always comes first, without that I would have nothing to market or promote”.

You can watch the awards streamed live here on Tuesday 26 September 7pm AEST.
