Huon Hooke, whose wine reviews are often included in this blog, has been awarded the prestigious 2007 Australian Wine Communicator Award.

The Wine Press Club of Australia assembled a panel of judges that included James Halliday and British wine writer Jancis Robinson. Huon Hooke was their unanimous choice.

“There was no question that Huon would be the recipient. There are few in his league when it comes to respect, influence and breadth of knowledge,” said the club’s president and judge, Darren Jahn.
