Wine producers and distributors from around Australia are invited to submit their wines 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 Sydney’s beverage operations and cellar manager, William Wilson, the wine list will support ICC Sydney’s Feeding Your Performance philosophy, with a focus on locally and sustainably produced wines.

A panel of industry experts led by Wilson will judge all submitted wines in a series of tasting sessions starting Monday 18 July.

According to Wilson, ICC Sydney’s wine collection will provide a platform for local labels to be exposed to Australian and international guests.

“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.

“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,” said Wilson.

ICC Sydney’s panel is expecting to taste over 200 premium varieties during the selection process, with the collection set to focus strongly on wines from NSW as part of the venue’s 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, NSW 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. We’re confident our collection will capture the best of the best,” Wilson said. 

To submit a proposal, please contact to receive a copy of the Request for Quotation form. Final submissions must be received by 4pm Friday 15 July to be considered.
