As reported by Wine Australia, “It is with deep and profound sadness that we report the death of Hazel Murphy AM in the UK on 31 December 2019.

Hazel was a great friend to the Australian grape and wine sector as a whole and a very dear friend to many. She will be very deeply missed.

As James recalled, ‘In less than a decade Hazel poured Australian wine for 250,000 people in venues ranging from food and wine exhibitions to sporting events… Pint-sized she may have been, but her energy and commitment were boundless.’
