Industry stalwarts Denis and Tricia Horgan from Leeuwin Estate were last week honoured with a Wines of WA Lifetime Membership Award presented by the Hon. Alannah McTiernan at a wine industry Parliament House cocktail event.
The event was an opportunity for both wine and tourism industry leaders to meet and discuss issues with Members of Parliament. WoWA Chair Trevor Whittington addressed the function, commenting that the wine industry was linked to all facets of regional development and government agencies. Export and wine tourism were the key areas of growth for the industry.
