Capital City Wine Shows and ASVO to review best practice

Support for a review of current wine show recommendations by the Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology (ASVO) was part of a series of discussions relating to the Australian Wine Show system at a meeting in Brisbane held recently.

Representatives from the Capital City Wine Shows (CCWS) and ASVO met at the Brisbane Showgrounds to discuss a range of measures to ensure that the Australian Wine Show system remains robust, transparent, engaged and relevant.

Both organisations agreed a review of the decade old best practice recommendations was a necessary step in moving forward.

Tony Jordan, ASVO board member, said the adoption of the first best practice recommendations in 2004 produced more robust and uniform show judging standards in Australia’s capital city and regional shows.

“Ten years on it is time to review those recommendations and to address new issues that have arisen with the aim of further strengthening the show system to the benefit of both producers and local and international consumers,” Jordan said.

Standardising wine show practices, improving transparency and better communication of show results with both exhibitors and consumers were priorities according to the two organisations.
