The marketing manager for a local winery has been nominated as one of the top female marketers in the nation.
Calabria Family Wines' Elizabeth Calabria-Staltare is one of three national finalists in the Marketer of the Year category.
Mrs Calabria-Staltare said she was humbled to receive the nomination but credited the entire marketing team for helping her receive the nomination.
"It's an absolute honour to be recognised as a contributor to the industry I am so passionate about," she said.
"I am fortunate to have a strong team behind me with family support."
The founder of the Australian Women in Wine awards Jane Thomson said the nominees are among the very best the Australian wine industry has to offer.
"The depth and breadth of talent we had enter the awards this year made it exceptionally difficult for our judges," Ms Thomson said.
"Theirs are exceptional stories that deserve to be told and celebrated."
Mrs Calabria-Staltare will be facing off against Handpicked Wines' Imogen Hayes and Howard Park Wines' Rebecca Love for the accolade.
The winners will be announced in a ceremony in New York City on the morning of September 18.
However, Mrs Calabria-Staltare will be unable to attend the awards as she will be expecting the birth of her third child, which is due in early October.
The Australian Women in Wine Awards have been operating since 2014.
