2018 NSW Wine Awards

Entries Now Open

The 23rd annual NSW Wine Awards is now open for entries. We encourage all NSW wineries to enter as it is arguably one of the more successful wine shows at helping increase brand awareness both with the public and with the hospitality industry and opening doors to genuine commercial opportunities.

The 2018 NSW Wine Awards will be judged in the Southern Highlands. This will be the 5th year in a row that a regional judging program will be conducted (previously in the Riverina, Hunter Valley, Orange and Mudgee). We believe it has been very successful for both the Awards and the regions, and the association plans to continue to take the NSW Wine Awards out each year to the areas that make up “Australia’s first state of wine”.

Key Dates:

  • Entries Now Open
  • Entries Close: Thursday 9 August
  • Judging Southern Highlands: 11-13 September
  • Awards Presentation, Government House Sydney: Friday 19 October
