Australian Gastronomic Icon, Lyndey Milan wins Prestigious Legend of the Vine Award

Friday 16th August 2019 marked the occasion when food and wine celebrity Lyndey Milan was recognised with Legend status.

Another achievement in an already stellar career, Lyndey Milan was named the NSW Legend of the Vine in front of many of her wine industry associates and colleagues at the WCA Sydney Royal Wine Show Trophy Winners Lunch.

True to form, Lyndey was overjoyed and somewhat moved by this recognition of her long-time service in the food and wine industry and as one of Australia’s most loved characters in both sectors.

National WCA Chair Toni Carlino said of the announcement, “It gives us great pleasure to present this honour to Lyndey, whose name is synonymous with food and wine in Australia. Lyndey’s passion, dedication and commitment, over many years has helped these communities flourish into what they are today.”

Lyndey is an Australian gastronomic icon and one of the most recognised food, wine and lifestyle personalities of our time. A multi-award-winning presenter, communicator, author and teacher with a career spanning over 30 years across television, radio and print.

Lyndey is the seventh person to be awarded Legend of the Vine status in NSW, and joins a prestigious national list that includes Huon Hooke, Clive Hartley, Iain Riggs, Rob Hirst and David Lowe.

Congratulations to our dear friend and all round superstar Lyndey!

Cheers cobber!
