BILL Calabria AM has been recognised as the 2021 Riverina Legend at the Riverina Wine Show.
Second-generation winemaker Calabria, who once fought as a professional boxer, has been a notable figure in the Riverina since first working for the family’s winery (formerly known as Westend) at the age of 14.
In 2013, he was made a Member of the Order of Australia for his significant service to the industry.
NSW Wine Industry Association president Mark Bourne said: “This deserved recognition of Bill’s accomplishments is borne from his passion, innovation and commitment to the Riverina, New South Wales and Australian wine industry over many years.
“We look forward to the exciting future for Bill and the entire Calabria family as they continue to play a significant role in the prosperity and growth of the Riverina for generations to come.”
The Riverina Legend award first launched in 2019 as part of the Riverina Wine Show. Bill Calabria joins Les Worland (2019) and Jim and Keith McWilliam (2020).
