Awards & Honours

Any piece primarily about awards granted to members (including businesses) and others eg List of Awards & Honours, business awards eg Small Business of the Year etc.

It’s important to remember that there is a difference between an award and an honour: An award is an achievement to be worked toward, a goal or a recognition to be earned. You can apply for an award. An honour, however, is granted without the recipient knowing about it until it is announced.

Inductees Di Davidson and Bruce Tyrrell

Australian Grape & Wine honours Di Davidson AM and Bruce Tyrrell AM as Life Members of the Australian Wine Industry.

As a fourth-generation winemaker, Tyrrell first joined his family’s business full time in 1974 and has been a key industry figure ever since. Established in 1858, Tyrrell’s has the joint honour of being Australia’s second oldest continually owned and operated family winery. In 2006, Tyrrell was recognised for his contribution to the Australian wine community with an Order of Australia Medal. His contributions have included improving grape quality, research, tourism, and export opportunities. In 2009, he was named a Hunter Valley Living Legend at the Hunter Valley Wine Industry Awards.
