Rutherglen Wine Show


The Rutherglen Wine Show has been running for over 120 years and is recognised by wine producers and wine consumers as one of the major wine shows in Australia. With well over 2000 entries across red and white table wine and sparkling and fortified wine categories, this is a major event on the Australian wine calendar.


The judging process is carried out over 6 days and every wine is assessed for gold, silver or bronze medals according to a strict set of judging criteria.  Following the judging, the public have an opportunity to taste the award winning wines at the public tasting on the Friday evening of the show. Tickets for this event are much sought after so pre-purchase of tickets is essential.
