The definitive guide to Australian Wines
Every year, James Halliday pinpoints the best wines, winemakers and wineries from a pool of several thousand in his annual Halliday Wine Companion guide. With categories that include Wine of the Year, Best Value Winery, Winemaker of the Year and Best New Winery, James cherry picks the top producers from a range of criteria to offer a true representation of the nation's greatest names in wine.
James Halliday said of the Halliday Wine Companion Awards, “The time was right to celebrate the Australian wine industry’s finest. We’ve never before had a ceremony like this and it’s a fantastic way to recognise those wines and producers that are truly remarkable. It’s been a great year for over-performers.”
