International Convention Centre Sydney’s (ICC Sydney) commitment to supporting local wines led by Sommelier William Wilson has been recognised at the NSW Wine Industry Association 2023 NSW Sommelier’s Wine List Awards.

Having previously been named as the winning Sydney venue with over 40 seats, as well as the NSW Wine President’s Award for Outstanding Support of the NSW Wine Industry for William Wilson in 2022, the venue was this year selected as the winner in the latest category to have been created by NSW Wine Industry Association for best wine list by a Caterer or Function Centre.

Wilson, who is also Food and Beverage Manager, has been instrumental in establishing the venue’s 100% NSW wine list alongside ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy and Director of Culinary Services Lynell Peck.

Wilson’s industry connections and knowledge of local wines have played a key role in the venue’s contribution to local food and beverage suppliers, which in 2018/19 resulted in $12.2 million in direct expenditure for NSW food and beverage suppliers with ICC Sydney actively building the venue’s support of local providers since.

“ICC Sydney is proud to promote NSW winemakers on our global stage, giving local brands the opportunity to be served to guests from across the world,” said Donaghy.

“The collaborative approach and strong relationships that the team has built with local wine producers has seen our NSW-focused wine list grow from strength to strength and we are proud to have offered local and international event planners and visitors an exclusively 100% NSW wine list for the past three years.”

Wilson said the quality of the wines produced in NSW was on par with the best in the country and around the world.

“As passionate champions of NSW wine, it brings our ICC Sydney team great pride to have been announced as the winner of 2023 NSW Sommelier’s Wine List Awards,” Wilson said.

“I congratulate all other category winners and finalists in this esteemed award program and I encourage more venues to follow in our footsteps of showcasing our state’s superb labels.”
