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 as Chairman of Judges, and also includes Usher Tinkler (Winemaker and owner of Usher Tinkler wines, Hunter Valley) and Annette Lacey (MW and Wine Director of Lotus Dining Group). All judges have extensive Wine knowledge and wine show judging experience.
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 2018 Wine Show.
One the afternoon of Thursday 6th September, there will be the normal Judges seminar where all exhibitors are invited to attend. However, additionally and like in 2017, there will be a number of one-on-one sessions for exhibitors to ask questions directly relating to their wine entries. The cost for a 25-minute session is $50 with a maximum of 3 participants from each exhibitor. Please contact Liam Heslop on 0429839913 for more information.
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.
Best regards and good luck in the Mudgee Wine Show
Chairman – Mudgee Wine Show
