About the NSW Wine Awards

The New South Wales Wine Awards were created in 1996 to build awareness of the quality of wines produced in NSW.

Since inception the Awards have become an indicator of the growth and diversity of our State’s industry, and recognised the potential of new regions within New South Wales.

Unlike traditional wine shows, the judges of the New South Wales Wine Awards taste wines of similar style regardless of the size of the producer, allowing large and small wineries to compete against each other.

Entries are judged by three panels headed by Chief Judge Dave Brookes. Each panel is chaired by a leading figure of Australian wine.

The awards are divided into categories: Best Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris / Grigio, Other white single varietals, White Blends, light red (Rose), Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Other single red varietals, and Red blends as well as the Dry Red and Dry White trophies, Sparkling and Sweet wines. The New South Wales Wine of the Year is chosen from one of these categories.  There is also an award for the Best Organic Wine of Show.
