The highlight of our 10th birthday celebrations in 2012 was the Wine Intelligence 10 for 10 Business Awards.

We created the 10 for 10 Business Awards to recognise the achievements of 10 individuals around the world who have made a significant contribution to our industry over the past decade. Chosen by a panel of judges, the awards have been presented throughout the year, and here’s a reminder of our final winners:

We would also like to extend a special thank you to our 10 Judges for their support and input:

Greg Berti • Felicity Carter • Ian Ford • Olivier Legrand • José Manuel Ortega Gil-Fournier • Mike Paul • David Pearson • Juan Somavia • Stephen Strachan • Paul Symington

As we decided to wish all our clients a Happy New Year via email again this year, we donated the money saved on cards and postage to a worthy cause. We donated the money to a project run by the YMCA in Mexico for underprivileged children that show strong potential living in rural areas south of Mexico City, called “Becarios de Campamento Camohmila”. Natasha, our Senior Project Manager, worked with them on her gap year and met a young man in his 20s who had “come from a very poor rural community to become a doctor in Mexico City thanks to this scheme”.

All of us at Wine Intelligence would like to wish you a very happy New Year and say a big thank you for your continued support in our 11th year of business.
