Victorian Wines Show Update



James Halliday and Brian Nankervis to feature at trophy presentation lunch
İt is not often that a wine show lunch can boast two famous celebrities…….
This year, James Halliday, the patron of the Victorian Wines Show, will launch our new trophy for Emerging and Alternative Varieties.

Our second celebrity is the well-known rock music and TV identity Brian Nankervis. Those of you who are familiar with his work on SBS’s Rock Wiz have a small glimpse into the gentle mayhem that he is likely to cause on the day.101520_home_hero

The lunch is on November 11 at Mitchelton Winery, commencing at 12.30, shortly after the conclusion of the exhibitors tasting. Details are available on our website.

Entry numbers up on last year
İt is pleasing to report that entry numbers are up on last year. We have had a great response from regions throughout Victoria and İ would like to personally thank all those producers who have entered.

What is even more exciting is that we have an increased number of producers who have entered this year. This means increased competition for the top awards, a more diverse range of wines and styles and a genuine representation of the best that Victoria has to offer.

Exhibitor tasting
This year, the exhibitors tasting promises to be a great event. Judging by exhibitor entries and knowing the standard of wines we have seen over the last few years, İ have no doubt that this year will offer an unbeatable opportunity to benchmark your wines against the best in Victoria. Red wines from 2013 should provide a particular highlight but there will be some excellent Chardonnays from 2014 and a wide range of alternative varieties. İf you want to see what the competition is doing and if you would like some honest feedback from our experienced judges, we welcome you to this tasting.
