Entries Close: 2:00pm, 16th Aug 2019

The Riverina Region Show GI Classes focus on evaluating the style and quality of wines produced from entirely within the Riverina.

2019 Open Show

1:00pm, 1st Sep 2019

Entries Close: 12:00pm, 8th Aug 2019

The Riverina is the country’s largest wine producer, accounting in NSW for 60% of the state’s production. Uniquely and proudly, five family-owned businesses are essentially responsible for driving the region’s engine-room, supplying one in every four glasses of Australian wine.

As a result, over time, these producers have been compelled to draw from well beyond the Riverina to meet demands for the considerable volumes of consistent quality wine they produce, to compete at key price points in both domestic and overseas markets.

Likewise, the Riverina Wine Show has expanded concurrently to reflect this reality, acknowledging the wider resources required by inviting large companies beyond the region to participate in the Riverina’s national competition, which has formed basis of the Riverina Wine Show, now in its 45th year.

1:00pm, 1st Sep 2019

Entries Close: 12:00pm, 8th Aug 2019

It is an initiative designed to support and champion the excellence of the smaller growers and winemakers within the neighbouring Tumbarumba GI who not only produce their own boutique labels, but make an important contribution to the greater Riverina by supplying significant quantities of cool climate fruit. This development is a natural progression that seeks to acknowledge and celebrate the partnership of these distinct yet interdependent regions and their respective strengths

The Australian Italian Varieties Wine Awards has been created by the Riverina Winemakers Association to focus specifically on the development of Australian wines from Italian varieties.

2019 James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge

8:00am, 26th Aug 2019

Entries Close: 11:59pm, 23rd Jul 2019

In our show’s short history, it has grown in stature and purpose to become a highly professional and influential show. Our judging panel has quickly established a formidable reputation for identifying the very best in modern chardonnay, across the full gamut of Australian styles.

This is a wine show whose only agenda is to track down, appreciate and reward the best that Australian chardonnay can offer, a philosophy we share in common with our patron, James Halliday.

James Halliday – “Chardonnay is enjoying its spring weather, after a prolonged, dark winter. Winemakers, wine writers, retailers, restaurateurs and consumers are all agreed: it is better than ever before. But winemakers, being winemakers, are not content to rest on their laurels. The challenge is (as ever) to make even better wines next vintage (and each vintage thereafter) than ever before. And this is what the Challenge is all about.”
