Thanks to all our producers

Wine Selectors could not have enjoyed 40 years of success without the support of the wine producers of Australia.

Some of them, including Tyrrell’s, Drayton’s and McWilliam’s, have been with us from the beginning, providing us with quality wine and themselves the opportunity to introduce their product to Australian wine lovers.

As part of our anniversary celebrations, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank our 400+ producers – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Here’s what some long standing producers had to say about us


Joe Grilli - Owner and Winemaker, Primo Estate

‘Primo Estate has been a supplier to Wine Selectors for over 10 years, during which time our relationship has gone from strength to strength. Today Wine Selectors are one of our most consistent and trusted trading partners. Their transparent and professional approach, respect for our brand and commitment to quality at all levels is to be commended. We look forward to many more years working closely together.’


Derek Hooper - Owner and Winemaker, Cape Jaffa Wines

‘For over ten years we have been supplying our wines to Australian Wine Selectors customers and have built a great relationship with Trent, Rob and the team. We have even been guest tasters in their wine selection tastings so we know first-hand how cracking good the wines have to be to make it through. And, that’s important because we also subscribe to the packs. As fine wine fanatics, we find it’s a great way to drink awesome wines that you can’t always find in the local bottle shop (only issue is there is never quite enough!).’


Suzanne Little - Winemaker, The Little Wine Company

‘We have been working with Wine Selectors since 1984 and they have played a huge role in the development of The Little Wine Company brand. When our wines are in a Wine Selectors pack they go out to people all over Australia; as a small winery that’s something we could not have achieved on our own. The rigorous selection process used by Wine Selectors is unique among wine clubs, and we work with the team to make the wines that they know their members are looking for. This quality assurance not only gives us peace of mind as we know our wines sit alongside other wines of quality but more importantly the members of Wine Selectors know they’re getting great wines in every pack, a win-win situation all round.’


Jay Tulloch - Owner/Chief Executive/Winemaker, Tulloch Wines

‘40 years is a great milestone in this business and we congratulate Wine Selectors on this anniversary. We have always enjoyed working with the Wine Selectors team and are proud of the association we share with them and their dedication and support of great Hunter wines.’


John Drayton - Managing Director, Drayton's Family Wines

‘‘On behalf of the Drayton Family I congratulate Wine Selectors on reaching 40 years. From humble beginnings 40 years ago they have evolved into the organisation they are today. Over this time they have supported many companies and individuals from the wine industry. I am pleased to acknowledge the support they have given Drayton’s Family Wines over this period. They seek product not only from the Hunter Valley but also from other premium wine growing areas thus giving members of Wine Selectors the best quality products.’


Neil McGuigan - Chief Executive Officer, McGuigan Wines

‘I have dealt with the Australian Wine Selectors (AWS) for 30 years. In that time AWS has grown into one of the most respected wine clubs in Australia. Wine quality and the consumer have always been at the centre of the business. From the very high standards demanded by the wine panel, to the high quality wine offering for the consumer, the members tastings, dinners, and of course the very well respected Wine Selector Magazine, AWS have established themselves as the “go to” wine club for the wine enthusiast. As a supplier AWS have been a great partner – tough but fair – and they work collaboratively to help build brand equity and regional identity. I congratulate them on their 40 years in the wine industry and I look forward to their continued success.’


Zoe Crittenden - Marketing Coordinator, Crittenden Estate

‘We have been selling our wine via Wine Selectors for more than 10 years and couldn’t fault them in every aspect. They are the only direct to market supplier we would ever consider using and take great comfort that our brand has not and never would be “damaged”, as can be the case with other direct to market suppliers. The way that our wines are marketed, the wine knowledge of the staff and the safe way that our wines are delivered into the homes of customers are other elements that we are very satisfied with. And to top it off, as a company they are fabulous to deal with in every way with excellent communication channels in place.’


Greg Silkman - Managing Director, First Creek Wines

‘First Creek have been supplying wine to Wine Selectors since our first vintage in 2000. Wine Selectors have been a great supporter of our brand allowing First Creek to introduce our wine their large and diverse membership of wine lovers.’


Allan Nalder - Owner/Winemaker, Helen's Hill and Ingram Wines

‘For well over a decade we view Wine Selectors as one of our most trusted business partners. For the most part we consider them more of a friend than a business partner. Their highly professional approach to selecting wines, commitment to supporting small independent brands and most importantly ensuring that high quality wines are delivered to the Australian public is to be commended. In a retail world that is full of home brands and generic mass produced wines it is extremely heartening to find a company such as Wine Selector that delivers to the public high quality, independent, family owned Australian wines.’


Paul Byron - Managing Partner, Byron & Harold

‘I have being doing business with the team at Wine Selectors for over 10 years now and they continue to be one of the best businesses in the Australian Wine Industry to deal with. From an industry professional point of view, they over deliver on all fronts and provide great exposure for our brands to a broad national consumer base, Marketing our wines with a premium focus that has helped build the wineries profile and awareness. The fact I am seeing branded Wine Selector Cartons in the back of my local Australia Postman’s van in Perth regularly, is testament to the success they are having in the Wine Industry today.’


Kevin Sobels - Owner/Winemaker, Kevin Sobels Wines

‘I considered myself very lucky when in 1981 Greg Walls selected a 1975 Hunter Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from our winery thus making us one of the first wineries to supply wine to the Hunter Valley Wine Society, as it was known then. With the exception of one year when we relocated our business from the Upper Hunter to the Lower Hunter I am proud to say that Wine Selectors have bought wine every year from us. To have been a supplier and to watch how they have grown over the years has been a wonderful experience. For any wine company submitting wine for selection, just to be able to see and talk to the professional winemakers and the panel members they employ today is a huge bonus to the wine industry particularly as they are based in the Hunter. Not many businesses survive for 40 years in today's world but to the credit of the owners and the staff they have experienced continuous growth and there would not be too many wine lovers in Australia who have not heard, not seen or who have not become members of the Hunter Valley Wine Selectors. Congratulations are in order to everyone that is connected today, some of whom have been working there since its inception and those who have worked for and supported Wine Selectors over 40 years. Congratulation again and may there be many more decades in which we can toast their existence.’


Daniel Binet - Director and Winemaker, Ballabourneen Wines

‘Ballabourneen Wine Co. considers Australian Wine Selectors as one of Australia’s best wine clubs, not only for the wines that they source from all around Australia but in leading the supply of innovative varieties and wine styles. The continued support and understanding of individual wine brands is the reason why so many small producers enjoy dealing with them. Australian Wine Selectors was the first to introduce my family label Domaine de Binet to Australian homes which has been a lifelong dream Partnering with Australian Wine Selectors, particularly if you are a small or medium sized wine business can support the ongoing operations of some of the best small parcel wineries that then in turn allows Australian Wine Selectors’ wine club members access to some amazing wines.’


Tim Wicks - Director, Wicks Estate

‘Wicks Estate is proud to be a partner producer, suppling premium Adelaide Hills wines to Wine Selectors for many years now. We have found the whole team a lot of fun to work with, while always showing an honest, professional and educated approach to all areas of its business. Wine Selectors has always been very aware of what we have wanted our brand to stand for and have represented it in all areas at the highest of levels. From this approach we believe Wine Selectors offers all involved a great selection of products from hand chosen producers at great value for money on a truly consistent level. Wicks Estate looks forward to many more years as a partner producer to Wine Selectors.


Brett House - Managing Director, Flying Fish Cove

‘I have been doing business in various capacities now for nearly 20 years with Wine Selectors, during this time the Australian Wine Selectors team have been an absolute joy to deal with and have a very strong understanding of what their customers are looking for in their wine drinking choices. The guys at AWS conduct themselves in a very professional manner and very much understand the challenges of the producers as well, it is no wonder the AWS customer base has grown so substantially during this time. Myself and Flying Fish Wines look forward to working together with AWS into the future to forge an even stronger relationship.

Thanks AWS team keep up the efforts for your customers and suppliers.’
