Wine Industry Network Sponsors Awards to Honor Innovative Suppliers
September 12, 2017, Healdsburg, CA – Nominations for the 5th Annual WINnovation Awards presented by the Wine Industry Network opened today. The program is part of the North Bay Business Journal’s (NBBJ) Annual Wine + Spirits + Beer Industry Awards (formerly Wine Industry Awards) that will be presented at a special wine industry reception at the end of November.
The Wine Industry Network created the “WINnovation” Awards as a way to identify and honor the most innovative industry suppliers and service professionals. These awards recognize companies that have developed ground-breaking products, practices, and have contributed to the advancement of the North American wine industry.
Many of the past WINnovation Award winners continue to set the highest standard in their field and push forward innovations that advance the industry for all.
The awards event will kick-off a week-long industry celebration that culminates with the 6th Annual WIN Expo: North Coast Wine Industry Trade Show & Conference held at the Santa Rosa Fairgrounds on Nov. 30, 2017.
“WINnovation Awards are a way for us highlight and celebrate the many innovative industry suppliers and to recognize that their efforts continue to propel the entire industry forward,” said George Christie, Wine Industry Network President.
Winners of this year’s “WINnovation” Awards will be featured in a special Business Journal report and the awards will be presented at the NBBJ Wine + Spirits + Beer Industry Awards reception on November 28, 2017 at the Hyatt Vineyard Creek in Santa Rosa, California.
