Three women from the Margaret River region's wine industry have been invited to New York City for the Australian Women in Wine Awards on Tuesday September 17.

Finalists from the region include Vanya Cullen - who has once again been nominated for a Winemaker of the Year award - making it the second time she has received such an accolade this year.

Also nominated in the Australian Women in Wines Awards were Howard Parks marketing officer Rebecca Love and Clairault Streicker cellar door person Ulrika Larsson.

Ms Love has been nominated for Marketer of the Year and Ms Larsson has been nominated for Cellar Door Person of the Year.

Australian Women in Wine Awards founder and chair Jane Thomson said the depth and breadth of talent entered in the awards this year made it exceptionally difficult for their judges.

"It just goes to show that after five years of operation, we are continuing to attract the very best female talent in the Australian wine community," she said.

"Theirs are exceptional stories that deserve to be told and celebrated."

More than 35 Australian female wine producers have been invited to the invitation only event, which will be live streamed back to Australia via the Australian Women in Wine's Facebook page.
