“ICC Sydney is committed to partnering with small and large regional producers to encourage the growth of wineries and local jobs,” said Wilson.


“Seventy-four of our wines are from New South Wales with the remainder of the collection comprised of stand-out wines from across Australia as well as a few international labels. A number of impressive vintages from across the State really shone through during the tasting, with the Hunter Valley, Orange, Riverina and Mudgee among some of the most fruitful regions.
