Situated in one of the most stunning and visited cities in the world, ICC Sydney, proudly managed by ASM Global, has access to some of the nation’s best wines produced in our very own home state, New South Wales. The talents of our winemakers have been proven time and time again and we are fortunate to offer some of the best of the state’s wines here at ICC Sydney through our 100% NSW wine list. After recently having had the privilege to attend two of the state’s biggest wine shows; the Hunter Valley Wine Awards and Orange Wine Awards, along with hosting the ICC Syndey NSW Wine Awards, I’ve witnessed firsthand the resilience, innovation and skill of our winemakers in overcoming the challenges of the last few years to produce top quality wines.
The annual ICC Sydney NSW Wine Awards is a significant event for our venue, acknowledging and celebrating the outstanding achievements of our region’s top winemakers, and displaying our ongoing support for local producers. Managed by the New South Wales Wine Industry Association, the show is open to all wineries in New South Wales showcasing the level of expertise and experience of these producers through the quality of NSW wines. ICC Sydney’s wine collection is made up of 100 per cent New South Wales wines. To serve local wines to our delegates while attending a conference in Sydney and tell the stories of these local winemakers and how their wine is made is equally as important.
We were delighted to host and sponsor the ICC Sydney NSW Wine Awards at our venue for the fourth time, welcoming the state’s best wineries and winemakers. The past few years have certainly not come without its challenges. While recovering from the damaging impacts of drought, bushfire and the COVID-19 pandemic, winemakers have also had to overcome the loss of two vintages with unusually wet conditions which have significant impacts on both the land and producers. Despite these challenges, our region’s winemakers have continued to come out on top, displaying their extraordinary talent and producing these award-winning wines.
My warmest congratulations to all the winners of the 2022 ICC Sydney NSW Wine Awards. I would like to give a special mention to our partners, De Bortoli, See Saw, Printhie and Tyrrell’s Wines who all picked up trophies for their exceptional wines in this year’s awards with the 2013 Tyrrell’s Vat 1 Semillon picking up three trophies including best wine of the show.
