Australian Inland Wine Show
The 2016/2017 Australian Inland Wine Show
~ Swan Hill ~
2016 Wine Show Entries are now open.
With entries now open, entrants are encouraged to enter online. To do so please go here and register if you haven’t already done so. If you prefer to enter using an entry form these can be found on this page or for the National Moscato Challenge entrants either here or here.
By now most people will have noticed the small change in the year of the Australian Inland Wine Show. Instead of just including a single year, we now encompass two years. The reasons are two-fold. First of all, it involves our valued sponsors and partners for a full financial year, rather than a calendar year. This was done in response to some of their feedback.
The second reason is that the Australian Inland Wine Show now involves two very separate but equally important events, each falling in separate calendar years. The Judging which is not open to the public, is always held on the first weekend in October, whilst the Public Tasting is now held the following March at the Swan Hill Food and Wine Festival. You can read about these events elsewhere on the web site.
Entrants to this years Australian Inland Wine Show will have the opportunity to win a new trophy. This trophy will be the “Best Sparkling Wine” and is drawn from eligible entries in classes 4.1 and 4.2.
With all this in mind, planning is already under way for the next presentation of entrants products to the Public at the Australian Inland Wine Show marquee at the Swan Hill Food and Wine Festival.
The National Moscato Challenge, introduced in 2014, has once again exceeded our expectations with more entries from all around Australia. Wine producers of this style will be happy to know that the National Moscato Challenge will again be a feature of the 2016/2017 Australian Inland Wine Show. And to make this “Challenge” even more appealing, we have decided to add two new trophies to the mix. They are trophies for “Best Sparkling Moscato” and “Best Still Moscato”, giving entrants more opportunities to be identified as top Moscato producers.
Congratulations to all our 2015 Winners!
