2018 Australian Italian Varieties Wine Awards

12:00am, 3rd Sep 2018

Entries Close: 12:00am, 31st Aug 2018

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. The awards have a natural link with the Riverina, as the region’s agricultural foundations were underpinned by the strong Italian migrant population, right back to the early 1900s.

2018 Open Show

12:00am, 3rd Sep 2018

Entries Close: 12:00am, 31st Jul 2018

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 43rd year.

The Riverina Region Show GI Classes focus on evaluating the style and quality of wines produced from entirely within the Riverina. These classes are specifically aimed at creating space for smaller producers to be represented in competition, providing the industry with a better perspective of the Riverina’s true capacity as a wine-producing region.

2018 Tumbarumba Wine Show

Entries Close: 12:00am, 31st Jul 2018

The judging of the Tumbarumba Wine Show will be conducted under the umbrella of the Riverina Winemakers Association. 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

2018 Langton's James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge

12:00am, 28th Aug 2018

Entries Close: 10:00pm, 6th Jul 2018

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.”
