On ‘Spotlight on Committee’ this week, let’s focus on Gill Sykes…

As a member of the VIC Committee, Gill brings in her expertise in the retail and marketing fields, alongside her highly decorated career in wine education.

As founder, Gill runs the highly successful Wine House retail company, which also serves as one of Australia’s leading wine education and events centres. She runs both WSET and the Wine Scholar Guild qualifications, as well as premium wine masterclasses and tastings.

In 2013, Gill was nominated for Global Wine Educator of the Year. She is a WSET Diploma graduate, a WSET-certified Educator, and a French Wine Scholar.

Gill’s passion extends beyond education into the fellowship of women in the wine industry. She is a strong advocate for the Australian Women in Wine initiative and was a founding member of the Melbourne Female Tasting Group.
