The Wine Show Committee is pleased to welcome producers with eligible exhibits to enter the 46 th 2017 Mudgee Wine Show. We would like to Thank CCL Labels for again being our major sponsor.
For the first time in 2017, the Mudgee Wine Show will be adopting the AWRI ‘Showrunner’ platform for entries and the running of the show. We believe this to be a great step towards making all entries be efficient and allow ease of entry among many other state and national wine shows. Please acquaint yourself with this new system.

The Mudgee Wine Show is proud to be a regional wine show that promotes wines made from grapes grown within the Mudgee GI. The panel of Judges is led by Mike DeGaris, and includes Sue Hodder and Steven Doyle.
Again at the Mudgee Wine Show, we will be allowing entries from local producers who utilise fruit from within the Central Ranges zone that encompasses Cowra, Orange and Mudgee. These blended wines often highlight the unique structural and flavour attributes that the Mudgee region possesses. Their importance is acknowledged by allowing their entry again to the 2017 Wine Show.
This allows the 2017 Mudgee Wine Show Committee to not only reward these producers with medals for their successful entries but also provides the scope for the Wine Show to retain an important educational focus for local Winemakers.
Additionally, in 2017, last years new class has been continued, named “Mudgee Classic Blends” to highlight blended wines made using Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz of which there are many outstanding examples. These innovations also maintains the relevance of the local Wine Show to a constantly evolving industry and market place. This will hopefully allow local producers to improve the quality of their wines and is in the true spirit of the Australian Wine Show system.
