Yarraman Estate’s export manager, Garrick Harvison, will compete at next week’s 47th Australian Export Awards, following his recent win at the Premier’s NSW Export Awards.
Harvison picked up the gong for NSW Young Exporter of the Year, which means he now progresses to compete on a national level against finalists from other states at the 47th Australian Export Awards held in Canberra on Friday, November 20.
Executive director of the Australian Institute of Export, Ian Murray AM, said “There are a large number of awards programs across our state, but there is only one that recognises excellence on the international stage. Like many of our sporting heroes, exporters that receive the recognition of an Export Award take on the world and win. It’s great to recognise excellence, but even greater to recognise those who compete against the best the world has to offer.”
Chief winemaker and managing director of Yarraman Estate, Ian Long, said the company is impressed by Harvison’s dedication and the results he has achieved for the Hunter Valley-based winery.
"This award is very well deserved by Garrick and is also great news for Yarraman Estate as export sales, like many others in the Australian wine industry, are key to Yarraman Estate’s success,” said Long.
To continue to drive their export success Yarraman Estate will also be launching a new range of wines under the name Winner’s Circle and a cider produced from 100 per cent Australian apples.
