Nina Throsby 2023 Winner

A quiet achiever, and a sommelier and drinks custodian with focus, diligence and a seemingly unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Nina Throsby is a younger-gen practitioner who’s flourished at The Shorehouse before being unleashed on the Kailis Group’s wider drinks programs. Tenacious in approach, Throsby’s work is illustrated with creative lists that lean heavily into local producers while selecting carefully from further afield. Colourful, broad wine programs have followed, tapping the zeitgeist while flexing with the individual needs of each venue. A gun, with fresh ideas and an individual take on the role of sommelier.
