Leading the pack at the Wine Industry Impact Awards

Impact News | December 2023

Last week Australian Vintage took home the Packaging and Design Award at the prestigious Wine Industry Impact Awards hosted by WISA – Wine Industry Suppliers Association Inc.

Our commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility has been recognised for our removal of single use plastics wrap from our cask wine production. We embraced cutting-edge robot technology to replace plastic-wrapped boxes with 100% recycled cardboard shippers. This one change alone eliminated over 42 tonnes of single-use plastic from our supply chain.

The Wine Industry Impact Awards recognise excellence in viticulture, winemaking, engineering and equipment, tourism, marketing, sustainability, digital and transport suppliers.

Cameron Hills, executive officer of Wine Industry Suppliers Association, was impressed with the resilience of the wine industry.

“The whole-of-sector event was a celebration in spite of the challenges facing us an industry right now. The Awards recognise and congratulate excellence and innovation in the wine industry supply chain,” said Hills.

“The Awards program highlights where progress happens in creating new opportunities to articulate the innovative solutions that are happening and how their practical adoption can help with efficiency, sustainability, quality, recovery, risk mitigation, brand development, safety and more.”

Thank you WISA for the recognition and congratulations to our Australian Vintage team.
