The 2024 Shortlist

To recognise all the incredible finalists considered for this year’s Halliday Wine Companion Awards, we present the 2024 Shortlist.

For the third consecutive year, judging for the Awards was conducted by the full Halliday Tasting Team. All nine tasters – James Halliday, Campbell Mattinson, Dave Brookes, Jane Faulkner, Jeni Port, Mike Bennie, Ned Goodwin MW, Philip Rich and Shanteh Wale – were invited to nominate candidates from their respective regions. The winners were then determined through a series of tastings and round-table discussions, meaning each title awarded is the result of a truly collaborative effort.

Below, explore the best wineries, winemakers and viticulturists that Australia has to offer.

All the winners will be revealed on Wednesday August 2, 2023. The 2024 edition of the Companion will be available from Thursday August 3, pre-order your copy here.
