Enjoy Tasmanian hospitality at Hobart wine show

Shared by |tags,

The Wrest Point Royal Hobart International Wine Show is one of the highlights of an exciting summer calendar of Tasmanian events, as well as a highly significant moment each year for the Australian wine industry.

First held in 1975, the show has grown to become the second-largest of its kind in the country and is renowned for its focus on innovation.

As the only wine show in the southern hemisphere making use of the specialised AS/NZS ISO 9001:2000 quality assurance accreditation to oversee the judging and stewarding processes, competition is serious.

Visitors to the show and members of wine-loving public should note that entries are restricted to bottled wines only – not barrel samples or pre-bottled varieties – meaning you are guaranteed to find these exact creations on shelves around the nation.

Judging occurs from November 4 to 15, with the awards dinners on the evening of the 16th and a trade tasting day on the 17th.

Public tasting is available November 17 at Hobart Showground.

For $25 guests can enjoy a tasting session of medal-winning wines in a comfortable atmosphere. The entry fee also includes a wineglass to take home, while a detailed catalogue of results is available for an additional $10.
