2022 WINE INDUSTRY IMPACT AWARDS
SHOWCASING INNOVATION FOR SUSTAINABLE CHANGE
3 November 2022 media release
Winners to be announced at the 2022 Wine Industry IMPACT Awards (WIIA), presented by WISA – Wine Industry Suppliers Association Inc, are currently being decided.
“We have been thrilled to see the diversity of entries, for segments across the wine sector. It was a challenging time after covid, with business in full travel mode, managing restricted staffing and increased workloads. The effort taken by members entering was duly appreciated. With emphasis on efficiency and optimising grape and wine production and sales, the highlight has been the sustainability focus common throughout many submissions.” WISA Executive Officer Shirley Fraser said.
WISA Chair, Jason Amos added “the opportunity to showcase projects for how our members have made impact to the sector is a key element of the awards, beyond being a winner or finalist.”

The generous support by sponsors goes beyond award sponsorship as it demonstrates the engagement of the supply chain in further connection with industry, retail, government, corporate services and producers.
It is vital we continue to encourage, recognise and be aware of, the innovative work being undertaken by supplier businesses. The Awards bring the industry together with practical and commercialised solutions to make impact during these challenging times. Now more than ever, we need leadership, industry stewardship, and new ways of thinking.
