Sommeliers Australia is excited to continue introducing some familiar (and some not so familiar) faces over the coming weeks, through our Spotlight Series of interviews.

Previously we’ve asked sommeliers, winemakers and industry supporters from Australia and around the world, to share their achievements, learnings and a few trade secrets.

Starting next week, our next Spotlight Series will focus on the group of individuals who form the Sommeliers Australia’s Diversity & Inclusion Work Group, kicking off with Noah Rozenfeld, a young sommelier from Israel who now calls the Mornington Peninsula home.

Background on the D & I Working Group:
In December 2020, the Sommeliers Australia National Executive Committee shared its vision to create a working group to look at how Sommeliers Australia could encourage greater diversity and inclusion within the association.

In response to this call to action, a number of Sommeliers Australia members and industry professionals, with a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, joined together in January 2021 to establish this working group.
