The NSW Small Winemakers Wine Show will be returning for its 26th year at the Forbes Youth and Community Centre, with judging occurring from 28 to 30 August.
This year 524 entries have been received from 89 wineries and will be judged to select the top wines based on their appearance, aroma, body, taste and finish. Judging will be done by Chairman of Judges, Mike De luliis from De luliis Wines, Pokolbin and his team of expert wine judges and associate judges.
Following the judging and the announcement of the results, the wines will be showcased at the public tasting event from 6:30pm on Friday, 1 September at the Forbes Youth and Community Centre.
Tickets are $25, which includes finger food, and are available at the door.
The award winners are then invited to a prestigious presentation night on Saturday, 16 September at the Forbes Services Memorial Club, which is also open to the public.
It features a five course meal accompanied by the trophy winning wines. Tickets are $100 and are available at BWR Accountants or by calling 0499 180 101.
NSW Small Winemakers Wine Show President Mark Watts said: “The committee and I are excited about what this year’s show will bring and it will be a great event. Our show is continuing to defy the trend of falling entries at wine shows, essentially maintaining the number of wineries entering our show, and the number of entries are similar to the past three years.”
