ICC Sydney Looking for Wine Partners

Wine producers and distributors are being urged to submit their best drops to International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) this month, as the venue looks to finalise its wine collection ahead of its opening this December.

 Collated by sommelier and ICC Sydneys beverage operations and cellar manager, William Wilson, the wine list will support ICC Sydneys Feeding Your Performance philosophy, with a focus on locally and sustainably produced wines.

A panel of industry experts, led by Wilson, will put all submitted wines through their paces in a series of tasting sessions starting Monday, 18 July 2016.

More than 70,000 bottles of wine will be served annually to an ongoing calendar of exhibitions, conventions and entertainment acts across the integrated precinct, said Wilson. We are keen to hear from producers of all sizes who share our passion for craft and quality. This includes boutique wineries that create high quality drops in small batches, and those delivering organic, biodynamic, low impact wines in line with our sustainability philosophy.

ICC Sydneys panel is expecting to taste over 200 premium varieties during the selection process, with the collection set to focus strongly on wines from New South Wales as part of the venues commitment to working with a network of local and regional suppliers. Winning wines from other states across Australia and a select number of exceptional international labels will round out the list.

With almost 500 wine producers and 329 cellar doors, New South Wales produces some of the top wines in the world. The diversity of climate and terrain has fostered ongoing success for established regions as well as encouraging new and exciting hotspots to emerge. Were confident our collection will capture the best of the best, Wilson said.

To submit a proposal, send ICC Sydney an email asking for a copy of the Request for Proposal documentation.

  Final submissions must be received by 4pm (Sydney time) on Friday, 15 July to be considered.
